Artistic Director of tiata fahodzi, Natalie Ibu speaks to Theatrefullstop about this year’s Tiata Delights Festival!
Hi Natalie! tiata fahodzi will be hosting the tiata delights festival on Saturday 7th November. How are you feeling ahead of the event?
It’s a really exciting time for us at tiata fahodzi – we turned 18 years old on 1 October, I’m almost a year in post, the team and company are fully settled in our new home at Watford Palace Theatre and we’re bringing back tiata delights for the first time in four years. I first encountered the company at the 2008 tiata delights at the Almeida, then directed some readings at the 2011 tiata delights at The Africa Centre and it was central to my vision for the company that we bring tiata delights back as a moment to bring artists, art and audiences together in conversation and in celebration.
tiata delights is an eclectic theatre festival offering an insight into the broad spectrum of theatre, from dramaturgy to directing. What can theatre goers expect to see and do on the day?
