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.
Check out the cool images and video below for a taste of what's been happening at Infecting the City:
