Wat is die Teksmark en wie mag deelneem? 

Die doel is om nuwe Suid-Afrikaanse verhoogtekste te ontwikkel en aan skrywers ’n geleentheid te bied om hul idees en tekste vir moontlike verdere ontwikkeling aan belanghebbendes in die teaterbedryf bekend te stel. Alle skrywers (hetsy gevestig of opkomend) kan deelneem.

Voorstelle word oorweeg om oor drie dae as leesteater by die Teksmark in Kaapstad aangebied te word. Verteenwoordigers van teaters, feeste, vervaardigers en ander moontlike beleggers word na die Teksmark tussen 27 en 29 Oktober 2020 genooi.

Tydens die Teksmark kry skrywers die geleentheid om oor hul teksidees te gesels. Die mark is oop vir enige van die belanghebbendes om met skrywers te onderhandel oor moontlike belegging in en verdere ontwikkeling van hul tekste.

Omdat daar beperkte tydgleuwe beskikbaar is, kies ’n paneel ’n aantal tekste. Regisseurs en akteurs word in oorleg met die skrywer aangestel om die uittreksels op te voer.

Proposals are presented as play readings at the Teksmark over three days in Cape Town. Representatives from theatres and festivals, producers and other possible investors are invited to the Teksmark from 27 to 29 October 2020. 

During the Teksmark playwrights have the opportunity to discuss their script ideas. The market is open for any of the interested parties to negotiate with the playwrights about the possible investment in and further development of scripts.
