Infecting the City

The Gordon Institute for Performing and Creative Arts (GIPCA) partnered with the Africa Centre for the 2014 “Infecting The City” Public Arts Festival in Cape Town in March. The annual festival showcases a number of international and local collaborative works, along with a diversity of entertaining, engaging and thought-provoking pieces encompassing performance art, dance, music, visual art and other forms beyond conventional categories.

GIPCA’s contributions embraced interdisciplinarity and engaged with public spaces in compelling ways and included Uncles & Angels, an interactive dance and video collaboration between choreographer Nelisiwe Xaba and video artist Mocke J van Veuren, and Cubicle, a mobile gallery offering artworks by students and alumni of the Michaelis School of Fine Art. Students from the School of Architecture also presented an exhibition of beautiful Urban Resting Places for people to meet.
