Ticket sales for Afrovibes 2018 have started! On Thursday, October 4, we open in the Compagnietheater with a spectacular program with dance performance With Nothing But Silence They Turned Their Bodies To Face The Noise (ZA) by PJ Sabbagha & Athena Mazarakis from South Africa, teasers of other performances that can be seen during the festival and The Kiffness!
Festival theme LAND
The festival theme this year is LAND. The world is changing, The Netherlands are changing, we are changing. Who are we in relation to the world around us, to our history, to the land where we live? Land is part of our identity. When do you belong and when do you not belong to the country in which you live? Land is also a vulnerable good. How do we deal with the land?
We believe that some of the perspectives to these questions can be found in the artistic renewal that artists in Africa deliver in their work. In the insights they reveal, the questions they ask and their strong interaction with the public. The performances this year confront us with the fierce visions and perspectives of African and Dutch artists on LAND.
Afrovibes Festival 2018 is from 4 - 14 October in Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam and Utrecht. A number of the festival performances are also part of Black Achievement Month.
