STAND Foundation launches

The Sustaining Theatre and Dance (STAND) Foundation is launched online

Given the challenges to the dance and theatre sector posed by COVID-19, a few colleagues and I established the STAND Foundation as a vehicle to support the dance and theatre ecosystem.  Money has been raised from individual patrons as well as from the Netherlands Embassy and Business and Arts South Africa (BASA) and various projects to provide income for practitioners will be initiated.  The STAND Foundation also launched a discussion document on a vision for the dance and theatre in the country which, if implemented, could radically shift the practice and sustainability of contemporary theatre and dance.  For more information about STAND, see or its Facebook page, Sustaining Theatre and Dance Foundation.
