Infecting the City

 
 
 
  • Infecting the City is a public arts festival held in various locations across Cape Town. In it's second year the event runs until 16 March 2013. It's characterised by spontaneous performances by local artists. All coloured with the 'infection,' this statue man left many revellers impressed with his ability to stand still for five minutes.

  • We went to Thibault Square during lunch time and witnessed a number of amazing acts. Cameras were flashing non-stop for the Tshikona Flash gumboot dance performed by Pedro Espi-Sanchis and his crew. Everyone, young and old dancing and singing along their inspirational music. (Nadia Krige)
  • Music is universal. Who would have thought that bottles, hammers and steel bars can bring about a pleasant combination of sounds to keep you dancing non stop? This band infected and electrified the Thibault square and traditional music was the winner. (Nadia Krige)
  • Sharing the feeling of infection. A reveller infected with the 'dancing syndrome' takes time and talks to News24. (Nadia Krige)
  • Dancing comes natural. Christelle Dreyer struts her stuff, proving that impossible is not an option. (Nadia Krige)
  • It's time to get infectious messages. Paper jets flying from the rooftop left revellers tussling and running for these infectious messages. (Nadia Krige)
  • A tussle to get infected. going home empty handed is not the ideal choice, everyone wants that special message from the mystery man up in the sky. (Nadia Krige)
  • An example of a schoolgirl being infected. You can tell she wants more infection as she chases for a unique message. (Nadi Krige)
  • Surprising messages? These infected art lovers look impressed and amazed by the message.(Nadia Krige)
  • Love is contagious, love is infectious, as this message from the sky suggests. Infecting the City has definitely left Capetonians with love and carries on until Saturday, 16 March. Check out Infecting the City's website for updates. (Nadia Krige)
