Pupils to learn more about their heritage from Fireside theatre


Local pupils will benefit from Fireside theatre’s commitment which is to create wider awareness of cultural heritage in Tubatse.
Fireside Theatre’s director Mike Gardner visited the Mapodile Library recently to guide locals about his projects and his wishes to transform the local pupils into best artists. The event was attended by local traditional artists, poets, actors and educators from local schools.
Gardner indicated that local schools will be targeted in promoting arts and culture, storytelling, poetry, drama and traditional music.
“ We want to ensure the conservation of an important part of the cultural heritage of local communities by recording myths, folklore, legends and other items of indigenous knowledge, customs, lifestyle and history,” said Gardner.
Gardner told this publication  that they are aiming at stimulating creative writing at school level by selecting and mentoring promising young people to
write play scripts, short stories based on fairy tales and stories they learnt while still young.
“Years ago we used to sit next to the fire and listen to our grandparents narrating stories, I wish to have our pupils act such plays on stage, or mime them. This will help in restoring our heritage,”
Fireside Theatre has also already adopted one of local schools, Imbita where they have introduced a play script.
“We are already having rehearsals with the pupils of the school. We want the learners to know the basic of drama.”
In Tubatse, the initiative is spearheaded by Ga Mampuru’s Dennias Mashegwane, he revealed they aim to use the medium of live stage performance to inform the youth about environmental and social issues.
Mashegwane is well known for playing flute, his piano and singing jazz and African music.
