Kamuzu Academy Drama Club...

... online in Russia

In June 2020 Ms. Kseniya Filinova-Bruton, founder and director of the Shakespeare Schools Festival - South Africa, returned to her native Russia to establish the Festival there.


We are delighted that she arranged for plays from Malawi and South Africa to be submitted online to the Dolgoprudny Spring Festival (22nd - 28th March 2021).


Kamuzu Academy's Othello (26:15) represented the Malawi Festival. It is the work of the Kamuzu Academy Drama Club under the direction of Mr. Lloyd William Parker.


The Dolgoprudny Spring Festival (Dolgoprudnenskaya Vesna) is hosted by Teatr Gorod and is sponsored by the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation (Moscow District).

Spasibo bolshoe (Many thanks and Zikomo kwambili) to all concerned. It is hoped that this will prove the beginning of international friendship and cultural exchange between the Malawi and Russian Festivals!
