4 – 15.10.2023, Netherlands | Afrovibes – Liquid Traces

Contemporary dance from Tanzania, theatre from South Africa, performance from Mozambique, Masterclasses from Ivory Coast and Nigeria and so much more at the 20th edition of Afrovibes.

The waters of the oceans served as ancient migratory routes for trade and carrying people away from their territories. But the oceans also connect continents and cultures. Water also features in healing rituals and ceremonies in many African cultures to come to terms with the past.

This year’s festival, with shows in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Utrecht, is an artistic response to these liquid traces, focusing on the East African region.
