Programme details for GIPCA's Live Art Festival change

Published: 26 November 2012

The programme that was to take place on Sunday, 2 December as part of GIPCA’s Live Art Festival in Cape Town will now be taking place on different days. The festival still runs from Friday, 30 November to Tuesday, 4 December.

Due to large scale events taking place in the city centre on Sunday, 2 December, the programme planned for that day at the City Hall as part of GIPCA’s Live Art Festival will not take place as planned. Those items will be absorbed into the programmes scheduled on the other days of the festival. The curators have taken care to ensure no work is compromised as a result. The City of Cape Town has been supportive in this regard and GIPCA apologises for any inconvenience caused.

Please see the amended programme below:

The Live Art Festival, presented by the Gordon Institute for Performing and Creative Arts, and subtitled ‘Make-up your Mind’, seeks to be a space for interrogation and exploration of contemporary art forms. Embodying themes of presence, identity and gender, the inaugural festival comprises over 30 artists who emerge from a wide range of fields, often collapsing disciplinary boundaries. Conceptualised by Jay Pather; the curatorial team comprises Jay Pather, Adrienne van Eeden-Wharton, Nadja Daehnke and Oddveig Nicole Sarmiento.

The Live Art Festival runs from Friday, 30 November to Tuesday, 4 December at various venues in Cape Town. Performances will only be staged once and, as with most live art, viewing room is very limited so members of the public are urged to book early. Tickets are day passes, which will allow audience members entrance to between three and seven works, depending on the programme. In line with GIPCA’s policy to make such work widely accessible, tickets are inexpensive: R40 (students) and R70 (adults) per day. These may be purchased online from Webtickets.

A full detailed programme is available from www.gipca.uct.ac.za. For more information, please contact the GIPCA office on fin-gipca@uct.ac.za or 021 480 7156.
