Lara Foot is National Arts Festival’s featured artist
Lara Foot, acclaimed playwright, director and producer, and CEO of the Baxter Theatre Centre, has been named the featured artist at the 43rd National Arts Festival.
As the featured artist, Foot will stage three productions at this year’s festival: the world premiere of her newest play, The Invonvenience of Wings, and the restaging of two of her multi-award-winning works, Karoo Moose and Tshepang.
Two decades after being awarded the 1996 Standard Bank Young Artist for Theatre, Foot has come full circle.
“In a year when the National Arts festival sharpens the spotlight on women writers, directors, choreographers and artists, Lara Foot’s contribution to South African theatre both in South Africa and abroad, positions her as a leader in the field,” said National Arts Festival artistic director, Ismail Mahomed.
