Terry Fortune talks to Naomi Meyer about his kykNET Fiëstas award.

It has nudged me to change the focus from one of self-preservation to one of sharing, caring and mentoring others who share my passion.

Congratulations on your kykNET Fiësta award! The unthinkable happened – this virus. How has the past year’s Covid situation influenced your life and world? 

It has nudged me to change the focus from one of self-preservation to one of sharing, caring and mentoring others who share my passion.

The world has not changed, but is merely in the process of adjusting to a new era.

The future is entrusted to those who recognise new beginnings and embrace technology to enhance their art. Theatre will not die, but will adapt.

.........

The past uncertain and difficult year resulted in many younger artists reaching out for advice and opinions – how learning about the past could help them build in the future. These and other life skill questions served as a balm to an aging thespian.

A world of art reflecting – renewal, innovation, adaptation and cultural assimilation.

What does this award mean to you in a time like this? 

I am overwhelmed, thrilled and delighted to be chosen out of a kaleidoscope of South African performers.
