Infecting the city
THE SPIER PUBLIC ARTS FESTIVAL: INFECTING THE CITY
From 1996-2007, the festival was hosted on Spier farm. To offer exposure to the broader public, the festival relocated to Cape Town's CBD in 2008, turning the city into an edgy theatre venue every February/March.
Presented by the Africa Centre, Infecting the City showcases provocative, site-specific performance works. It pushes the limits of performance and festival programming, engaging people who might otherwise never see performance art. Many of the performances are free to the public.
