The Afro Galactic Dream Factory At Hiddingh Hall

Infecting The City is proud to announce an extension of the Festival for 2013. Rained out from its scheduled time, the Afro Galactic Dream Factory will now take place at Hiddingh Hall on Tuesday 26 March at 8.30 pm.

The Afro Galactic Dream Factory is an afro-techno audio-visual symphony, a mash-up of musical genres and artistic disciplines thrown into the bountiful void of outer space, the place of our future paradise regained, remixed, re-dreamed and relaunched.

Featuring an eclectic group of artists and musicians brought together
by director and producer, Catherine Henegan, the Afro Galactic Dream Factory is performed by Jimmy Rage, Mr Sakitumi & the Grrrl, Masello Motana, Bliksemstraal, Lee Thomson, Ross McDonald, Bongani Magatyana and The Mafrica Mbube Singers.

Set in world somewhere in the future, they celebrate the revolution’s
evolution beyond the prescripts of racism, war, violence and other earthly
limitations. Lest they should forget, they also remember darker days back on
earth where these things still existed and prevailed.

The Infecting the City Public Arts Festival is presented by the  Africa Centre. The Afro Galactic Dream Factory is presented in partnership with the Gordon Institute for Performing and Creative Arts (GIPCA), and supported by the Performing Arts Fund NL.
