Puppets, Poetry, Performance Art and Plenty More at Infecting the City in Cape Town

Handspring Puppet Company (hardcover)Infecting the City is an annual public arts festival that takes place in public spaces in Cape Town. It features both visual and performance arts, and is free to all.

The Handspring Puppet Company, the subject of Handspring Puppet Company by Jane Taylor, will present “I Love You When You’re Breathing”, a meta-theatrical performance-lecture, delivered by a puppet, about the behind-the-scenes life of a puppet. The presentation will be delivered between 8 and 10 PM at the Castle of Good Hope on Monday, 9 March and Tuesday, 10 March.

Badilisha Poetry X-Change will be presenting “City Desired Tour” at the Cape Town Station from 4 to 5 PM on Thursday, 12 March. The event is a brew of stories about Cape Town, and a tour of the city’s tensions and possibilities.

Luthando Mthi will present a story about a girl who receives a calling from the ancestors, called “Khosi”. The performance will incorporate traditional music and dance. It will be at the Civic Centre on Hertzog Boulevard between 3 and 4:30 PM on Tuesday, 10 March, and Wednesday, 11 March.

Don’t miss out!
