SHARED HISTORY: AN INDIAN EXPERIENCE IN SOUTH AFRICA

Shared History, a Festival of Teamwork Arts in collaboration with the High Commission of India in South Africa came into existence in 2007, A festival of visual and performing arts, the festival is a unique endeavour platforming the wealth of India’s classical and contemporary cultural heritage including dance, theatre, music, food, film, literature and visual arts.

The Festival of India attempts to provide audiences in South Africa an occasion to engage with the cultural diversity of India’s heritage.
Shared History is a festival that perfectly blends with the festivity and spirit prevailing in the rainbow country – South Africa. The conception of this festival was with a simple aim, i.e. to bring together cultures of two countries that share common histories.

Since its inception, Shared History takes to South Africa a mix of artists and acts varying from Music, Dance, Theatre, Comedy, Wellness and Food. These acts are made more interesting by collaborating with the local artists in South Africa resulting in an enthralling time spread over a period of 2-3 weeks.

This year Shared History is celebrating its 9th successful year. Beginning from the 4th to the 16th of September the festival will take place in 4 cities- Johannesburg, Durban, Cape Town and Pretoria.

The uniqueness of the festival lies in the successful cultural experiment highlighting the shared bonds between the two countries through performing arts. So don’t miss the dates and come be a part of History in making!
