A spirit of artistic innovation with a range of national, continental and world premieres in theatre, dance, music and visual art will be celebrated at this year’s National Arts Festival, running from 30 June – 10 July in Grahamstown.

“The artists come from everywhere, all disciplines, and are amongst the most excellent, courageous, thoughtful, provocative and iconic,” said Jay Pather, National Arts Festival committee chairperson. “The Festival attracts the best administrators and production crew that help mirror a complex and vast nation on many fronts. From jazz to drama, installation art to comedy, we draw innovation and excellence from a variety of cultures. So we attract the most discerning, wide cross section of audiences,” he added.
