Infecting the City returns!

Infecting the City

A multi-disciplinary public art festival with the City of Cape Town as its backdrop, Infecting the City (ITC) will again engage the communal spaces of the central business district between 5 and 8 April 2017.

A collaboration between the Institute for Creative Arts and the Africa Centre, the 10th iteration of ITC is firmly focused on making Cape Town a more public city by providing a platform for a broad spectrum of artists and art forms to have a voice in what matters in this moment. Co-curators Khanyisile Mbongwa and Leila Anderson embrace multidisciplinarity and place this year’s works in positions to disrupt conventional foundations with spontaneous performances and interventions in public spaces.

A workshop program with visiting artists takes place on 5 April and 7 April .


Participating artists include:

Mandla Mlangeni, Frankie Murray, Aphiwe Mpahleni, Indoni Dance, Arts & Leadership Academy, Darkroom Contemporary, Joan Català Carrasco (Spain), Jazzart Dance Theatre, Moeketsi Koena & Gaby Saranouffi (Madagascar), Jean-Michel Roland, Enkidu Khaled (Iraq-born, Belgium-based), Lebohang Kganye, Philiswa Lila, Yazeed Kamaldien, Nolufefe Ntshantshe, Sita Suzanne & Alex Trapani, Tamryn Pelser, Mandla Mbothwe.
