This site serves as an archive for the 2017 Cape Town festival which was held between 5 – 8 April. Here you will find the full programme, biographies of the participating artists, artwork descriptions and further background of the Festival, as well as video clips of various productions.
A collaboration between the Africa Centre and the Institute of Creative Arts, the 10th iteration of ITC was firmly focused on making Cape Town a more public city by providing a platform for a broad spectrum of artist and art forms to have a voice in what matters in this moment.
Co-curators Khanyisile Mbongwa and Leila Anderson’s vision came alive as an exciting 4-day programme which included day and evening events and a workshop series. The 2017 festival positioned itself around the question of reparations, power and privilege and how these notions speak to our collective rights.
