Mafuwe International Festival of Dance is a platform which aims at advancing, promoting and celebrating the art and culture of dance. The festival is to be hosted in the capital city of Zimbabwe, in Harare from 16-18 August 2019.
The festival that is set to bring together to Harare various dancers, performances, artists from the world over. This is going to be the first time in Zimbabwean history, an all international dance festival is being hosted.
Contemporary dance from the African continent is growing, though still underrepresented in the global arts scene and hard to find at international festivals. It is a vision to create unity, to create a network for dance, combining the showcasing of performances that are coming from African countries, presenting performances from abroad where African dancers are the driving forces and bring in international works that aim to deal with diversity and intercultural understanding. We are very curious about interdisciplinary works and works that intermediate different dance forms (classical, contemporary, urban, traditional etc.).
