The Mic is Calling

The call is out for all Rappers, Comedians, Hip-Hop dancers, Poets and Pantsula dancers to participate in various competitions at the State Theatre, Pretoria. The South African State Theatre is looking for upcoming comedians, hip hop rappers/dancers, poets and pantsula dancers to take part in competitions during The State Theatre’s Annual 3rd Youth X-precision Festival. Exciting news is that there are prices to be won as well!

The Youth Festival was first conceived and embarked upon in 2009, wherein arts practitioners from around Gauteng took part in the festival; many of which were outstanding and awarded prizes.

The second year of the festival grew to even bigger heights as it happened to be running simultaneously with the World Cup hosted in South Africa.

The festival has a spectacular mix of dance, music, poetry, drama performances as well as outdoor performances. Interested participants should download entry forms from The State Theatre’s website or collect the forms from The State Theatre’s reception. The closing date for submission of forms is 24 May 2013.
