African culture redefined

African culture redefined

MOTION: Poetry Fest innie Obs

The Naked Word Festival 2017 takes place at the Theatre Arts Admin Collective in Observatory.

This festival is presented by Lingua Franca Poetry.

The theme of the second edition of this spoken word festival is “I Speak of my Inherit Age”.

One of the organisers, Mbongeni Nomkonwana, said of the African-centralised theme: “History has displaced many South Africans, culturally and physically. We want to place ourselves culturally, but that demands a re-shape of our understanding of ‘culture’. We are redefining culture as generational, and we are employing live poetry, music and dialogue to do this.”

Tickets are available online via Webtickets.co.za between R30p/* to R100p/* , or a weekend pass for R250p/* .
