Infecting the City

Infecting the City
Infecting the City (ITC) is an annual Festival which is held in Cape Town, South Africa. This event is growing bigger and better and more popular amongst the locals and visitors each year. The festival is brought to Cape Town by Africa Centre and it turns Cape Town upside down with public art. The plazas and squares theatres and the pavements turn into art galleries. The atmosphere is electric and exciting.

The artworks on the Festival were divided into four sections, The Jewels, City Treasures, Slices of Life and The Music Gems.
The Jewels were a collection of short performances, all of which were exciting and intriguing. Each day brought a new diversity of interesting and exciting performances to its audience from Ballet, Jazzing, Irish Dancing, Ethiopian Coffee Ceremony, Opera, Piper System, Ratiep, Tai Chi, Greek Dancing and Xhosa Stick Fighting to mention only a few.
The City Treasures brought out hidden threads from the world we live in and crafted fascinating journeys to the audience. They brought a variety of productions to the city from hidden rivers, forgotten monuments, sculptures and heritage sites. Each production was first class and well performed.

Slices of Life is a dynamic team who dealt with the critical issue of garbage in the community. The statistics are frightening.
