TOWNSHIP SAFARI is a political statement about the tourism that happens in the poorest neighborhoods of South Africa. This is the first international production from I AM THE INNER CITY and we want to awaken the city of Cape Town to the exploitation that is happening in the Townships.

HOW CAN YOU HELP.

BY CONTRIBUTING TO OUR CAUSE. The US dollar is strong here $1= 8 bucks in South Africa so your contribution will go a long way!

WHAT ARE YOU SUPPORTING?

A 3 day run of TOWNSHIP SAFARI- we want a lot of people to see this production and 3 days will be perfect for students, press and a diverse audience.

Covering rental costs of the theater.- Self explanatory.

Covering design costs of the theater.- We want to recreate the world of the township on stage, by using multimedia and innovative design.

Paying the actors.- South African actors barely get paid. Their average is R600 a production, which is less than $100. This is a 3rd world country and I want to give the actors a good enough salary during this process.

Advertisement costs.- Theater in South Africa is barely publicized and it is almost a class division in a sense we want to EVERYONE from all backgrounds to see this play!


ALL CONTRIBUTIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE!

$2000 is barely anything to put up a production in a theater in the USA but when it becomes R16,000+ in South Africa we can really put on a show! YOUR CONTRIBUTION REALLY GOES FAR. PLEASE SUPPORT THIS PROJECT! SUPPORT OUR MESSAGE!
