Putting a Spotlight on Human Truths.About The Fugard TheatreAbout LoeriesAbout PendoringAbout Adobe Design Achievement Awards
For as long as we've known, the theatre has given artists and playwrights a creative space to use as a platform for social commentary. The stage is their way of highlighting the underlying human truths of the world, and to create conversation. The Fugard Theatre, located in the historic Sacks Futeran building in District 6, allows just that.
The Fugard Spotlight campaign aims to highlight social issues that are relevant not only to South Africans, but to the rest of the world too. Showcasing live at The Fugard Theatre, these universal truths are given their time in the spotlight.
The campaign is rolled out as press and indoor posters.
