🗓 19 – 22 April 2019
The Easter Theatre Festival (ETF) unites drama, theatre, dance and poetry in a unique setting at the Jacaranda Cultural Centre. Over 4 days, artists from Malawi as well as international artists come together to perform and celebrate the arts. After its great initiation in 2015, the second edition of the festival will be relaunched in 2019. The Festival offers a unique opportunity for audiences and artists to discuss current issues and offers space for networking, performing and also offers educational workshops to young people, students and theatre artists.
The Festival is the first of its kind in Malawi and the only theatre festival in Malawi. Following on from the success of the Festival in 2015, the 2019 edition will expand local entrepreneurship by also supporting artists and designers to ‘sell their wares’. Malawian designers will sell their products at the Festival from designated stalls, which will reinforce the Malawi Government’s “Buy Malawian” campaign. The festival shall support inmates at Chichiri Prison and Jacaranda foundation to enhance its community social responsibility.
You can support the festival through their Kickstarter campaign.
