Invisible Cities: A 12 Month Long Festival

Invisible Cities – Part One

Invisible Cities is a year-long music and arts festival in the form of 12 once-off monthly events set in the empty buildings soon to be part of Johannesburg’s Maboneng arts precinct, home to Arts on Main, Goethe on Main and Main Street Life. The events will make use of transitional spaces – empty buildings that are no longer what they once were, and not yet what they will soon become. Rooftops, hallways, stairwells and facades will be transformed into snapshots of a possible Johannesburg.Part one will feature performances by local acts The Frown and The Brother Moves On, who in collaboration with The Skeleton Crew, a multidisciplinary artist collective, will build installations and environments and transform spaces. They will step out of the expected limited role of stage performer to shape a one of a kind unforgettable experience, offering new perspectives of our city. In partnership with the Goethe Institut, Maboneng Precinct, Vice Magazine, Sailor Jerry Rum. When: Monthly Events until May 2012, first on Sunday, 29 May from 14.00 until 21.00Where: Rooftop of Revolution House, Main Str cnr Kruger Str, Maboneng Precinct.
