Infecting The City is proud to announce an extension of the Festival for 2013. Rained out from its scheduled time, the Afro Galactic Dream Factory will now take place at Hiddingh Hall on Tuesday, 26 March at 8.30 pm.
The Afro Galactic Dream Factory is an afro-techno audio-visual symphony, a mash-up of musical genres and artistic disciplines thrown into the bountiful void of outer space, the place of our future paradise regained, remixed, re-dreamed and relaunched. Featuring an eclectic group of artists and musicians brought together by director and producer, Catherine Henegan, it is performed by Jimmy Rage, Mr Sakitumi & the Grrrl, Masello Motana, Bliksemstraal, Lee Thomson, Ross McDonald, Bongani Magatyana and The Mafrica Mbube Singers.
Set in world somewhere in the future, they celebrate the revolution’s evolution beyond the prescripts of racism, war, violence and other earthly limitations. Lest they should forget, they also remember darker days back on earth where these things still existed and prevailed.
The Infecting the City Public Arts Festival is presented by the Africa Centre. The Afro Galactic Dream Factory is presented in partnership with the Gordon Institute for Performing and Creative Arts (GIPCA), and supported by the Performing Arts Fund NL. This event will take place at Hiddingh Hall, UCT Hiddingh Campus, 31-37 Orange Street, Cape Town, at 8.30pm on Tuesday 26 March. Entrance is free and no booking is required.
