Harare International Festival of the Arts 2014

From April 29th until May 4th 2014, the International Festival of the Arts took place in Harare, Zimbabwe. Images of some of the theatre performances are shown here.

About the festival we can read the following on its website: "HIFA is a 6-day annual festival and workshop programme that showcases the very best of local, regional and international arts and culture in a comprehensive festival programme of theatre, dance, music, circus, street performance, fashion, spoken word and visual arts. HIFA has come to be seen as an important symbol of something positive about Zimbabwe, unifying socially and culturally disparate groups of Zimbabweans at a time of ideological conflict and political uncertainty bringing huge audiences together to celebrate something positive – the healing and constructive capacity of the arts."
