Infecting the City 2013 in Cape Town: photos and video
Fazielah Williams has lived in and loved her Mother City since birth. Having lived all over the Peninsula during her childhood, she now calls the picturesque City Bowl home and likes nothing more than watching the sun set over Table Bay from the window of her apartment.
A lover of the arts and proud Cape Town fanatic, Fazielah began her writing career by spending many hours as a child conjuring fantastical stories that featured independent heroines from faraway lands who saved the Prince instead. This Capetonian princess has enjoyed stints as a magical arts PRO and TV publicist before finding her calling as a travel writer.
When not waxing lyrical about the Fairest Cape’s most loved attractions and activities and embarking on unexpected adventures, Fazielah can usually be found taking in a show at one of the City’s fabulous theatres.
Cape Town’s biggest public arts festival, Infecting the City, is currently enthralling locals and visitors alike as it reawakens an appreciation of creativity and artistic expression in the streets of the Mother City.
Running until Saturday 16 March, 2013, this year’s festival boasts a variety of innovative events. Festival-goers are spoilt for choice with fascinating performances that include: the Tshikona flash mob on Thibault Square; dramatic photography exhibitions by French artist Antoine Tempé in the Company’s Garden; a video projection of international shipping ports on the walls of the Taj Cape Town in Wale Street; and sprawling glow-stick installations across the city centre’s pavements.
