Our creative inter-generational project, Sounds Like You and Me, in partnership with Tswelopele Frail Care Centre, which is also based in Hillbrow, will take place again this year.

Over the last two years the project has travelled from the Olive Tree Theatre in Alexandra, where we brought young and old to witness our work (for many of the elders, this was the first time they had ever been in a theatre), to PopArt in Maboneng and to the Emakhaya Theatre at the University of the Witwatersrand (home to many Drama for Life Festivals).

We have also had the amazing opportunity to travel to Cape’s prestigious 19th ASSITEJ World Congress and International Theatre Festival for Children and Young People with the project. This year we would like to build on this journey by travelling to schools and old age homes and our big dream is to perform at the National Arts Festival.

Sounds Like You and Me promises to be an exciting theatrical experience based on the true accounts of the sad, joyous, reflective, prospective, funny, and at times, the obscure and random stories and memories of a most dynamic group.

Please contact us if you would like to fund or support us. We will have photographic or video documentation (depending on funding), publicity material, social media campaigns and posters that will display our funders and their logos. We are confident that the benefits to our funders and supporters will be immense.

Be part of this unique, inspiring and collaborative work from Hillbrow by sponsoring us. Contact us today!

As we embark on this 4th interaction, we would like to thank and acknowledge Henrik Haartman, Naghmeh Mahmoudi Kashani, and the C:NTACT team for inspiring this project with the generous support of the Danish Agency for Culture.
