Welcome to the website of the French Institute of South Africa!
Bienvenue sur le site de l'Institut Français d'Afrique du Sud !
This year again, IFAS participates to the Dance Umbrella Festival and proudly supports "Lady Lady" collaboration at Dance Umbrella Festival on 2 –3 March 2017
LADY, LADY proposes an experience into a female universe built up by the personal journeys of three female artists from different countries within the Southern Africa region (South Africa, Mozambique & Madagascar)
The three artists share, search, explore and exchange their realities together in order to give voice to various commonalities, challenges & images. The work seeks to question the image, value attributed to and the objectification of women by challenging, sometimes highlighting preconceived ideas of what a women is, or should be. It is a commentary on current issues facing women on the African continent.
