Infecting the City Festival 2012 in photos
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.
Creativity, movement and social awareness abounded on the streets of the city during the third annual Infecting the City performance arts festival, which took place from 6 to 10 March, 2012.
With a variety of enthralling productions, flash mobs, installations and exhibitions, the festival showcased moving art in an urban context.
From ballet and classical music at iconic landmarks, including Cape Town Station and Iziko South African Museum, to art displays and live performances in the bustling St George’s Mall and Long Street, this year’s festival was an artistic explosion in the city centre that attracted many spectators.
