From October 3rd to 5th, the 21st edition of the Afrovibes Festival will take place at the Maaspodium, featuring theater, dance, performance, and fashion from and about Africa. The central theme Africa is not a country emphasizes the diversity and complexity of the African continent, recognizing the unique characteristics of each region. This year, the focus is on North Africa.

The North African region is often seen as part of the Arab world rather than the African continent. This raises questions about identity and connectedness, fitting within the festival's 2024 theme: Belonging.

A ticket gives you access to both performances and the side programming each day. After the performances, there will be an artistic talk, and to conclude the evening, there will be a DJ.

Fractal

In Fractal, Tunisian choreographer Wajdi Gagui combines the beauty of contemporary dance with the infinite possibilities of digital art. Fractal is an enchanting experience in which the dancers move through a world of constantly changing shapes, connecting human and digital images. A fractal is a geometric shape that repeats infinitely, creating complex and fascinating patterns. This idea of infinity and complexity is at the heart of Fractal, which explores the relationship between nature, technology and art. Using digital projections and the interaction between bodies and technology, Fractal becomes an immersive and fascinating experience for the audience. 

Sporen van Haar | Traces of Her

Sporen van Haar | Traces of Her is a multidisciplinary theatrical performance that depicts major themes such as struggle and survival in the colonies from a female and African perspective, using Afro-futuristic forms. The inspiration comes from the West African black rice that was smuggled in the hair of Maroon women and its significance today. The performance is an ode to the Maroon women, with the rice grain as a symbol for the traces of evidence in our present that lead us back, along the trail of the rice, to the trans-Atlantic slavery and African roots. It tells the story of the risks and dangers faced by the Maroon women, the loss of their own land, resilience, the preservation of their own culture within an extreme system of oppression, a new relationship with the Surinamese forests, and the knowledge of earth, nature, and agriculture.
