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.
