FTH:K is a young, independent theatre company with the mantra:

Listen With Your Eyes

Our non-verbal, visual theatre integrates Deaf and hearing artists, audiences and educators, and has won multiple awards in its 8 years of existence. Our aim of bringing together the Deaf and hearing is best illustrated through our unique Tell-Tale Signs programme which has trained, inspired and fascinated Deaf and hearing communities around the world since the company's inception.

“FTH:K is an independent and vibrant theatre company that has enriched the South African theatre landscape with its original and unique approach to visual theatre. Having pioneered itself as a groundbreaking South African theatre company which casts both hearing and Deaf actors, their work challenges and enriches both the artists and the audiences through a combination of visual and performing arts forms such as puppetry, masks and live performance. As trendsetters of this genre in South Africa, it is clearly evident that the current growth in visual theatre on the festival and mainstream circuit is influenced by FTH:K’s prolific style and their ability to continually raise the bar both on excellence and innovation.”
Ismail Mahomed, Director, National Arts Festival

Candidates are nominated anonymously by leading professionals in their field, and it is a great honour to have been considered.
