GIPCA to host 2nd annual Live Art Festival

27 Jun 2014 - 17:30

The Gordon Institute for Performing and Creative Arts (GIPCA) will host the second annual Live Art Festival from 27 August – 6 September 2014. This year's festival has grown to include 35 works of innovation, many of which are either international or South African premieres.

Selected in 2012 by the Sunday Independent as one of its five top art events in the country, the Festival grows this year to feature thirty-five works of innovation by artists that demonstrate an edge in performance art practice. Many works are either International or South African premieres. Live Art brings together a range of artists from the fields of visual arts, dance, theatre, music, architecture and literature.


Most works are collaborative and interdisciplinary, with artists from across South Africa as well as Switzerland, the United Kingdom, United States, Cameroon, Nigeria, Netherlands and Ghana. The Festival will take place in various spaces at UCT’s Hiddingh Campus, Erf 81 in Tamboerskloof, the Cape Town City Hall and several clubs in and around Green Point. Audiences will be able to move from one work to another, viewing up to five works per evening.
Detailed Festival programme and ticketing information will be available on the GIPCA website from Monday 7 July 2014. For more information, contact the GIPCA office on +27 21 480 7156.
