In place of Infecting The City Festival, this year we introduce the ITC Sessions. The ITC Sessions are a series of events in diverse spaces, keeping the unpredictable, inspiring spirit of Infecting The City alive.
Taking place over several dates in March and April, the ITC Sessions are concentrated on specific locations: the Company’s Garden and St Georges Mall in the CBD, and further afield in Langa.
Each Session brings a dynamic programme of performance, dance, visual art and music out into the public, offering audiences a chance to stop, engage, be provoked and be moved. The artworks tackle current issues with humour and style; inject moments of quiet into busy urban streets; set muscles on fire and light up ideas and emotions. Private rituals are brought into the public sphere and personal encounters are playfully facilitated. The ITC Sessions open up public spaces as sites rich with questions, engaging the city and its people in creative conversation.
Join us for all the ITC Sessions!

The programme indicates the locations and order in which works are presented on the respective routes, as well as the timeframes for these presentations. We have to use timeframes, as moving audiences from artwork to artwork along a route makes it impossible to publish exact starting and ending times for each performance.
Additional information on artists and artworks will be released weekly.
