The Independent Theatre Movement of South Africa (ITMSA) will be a global theatre movement recognised throughout South Africa and beyond as the benchmark for theatrical excellence, by its students, professional theatre practitioners, supporters, competitors, strategic alliances, investors and the public. We will be the yardstick by which other theatre organisations will measure their performance. Our students are our most valuable resource and we will nurture, develop and capacitate them through innovative and cutting edge interventions so that they can excel and take their rightful place in the global theatrical world of work.
