Every year in August, all roads in Blantyre, Malawi lead to The Arts café run by Nanzikambe Arts in Naperi Township. It is time for theatre and arts enthusiasts to enjoy the can’t-miss classical and avant-garde performances from across the globe. It is time for the Mwezi Wawala International Arts and Theatre Festival 2013 edition.The Festival continues to offer extraordinary line-up of marginalized art genres which are: theatre, poetry/storytelling, traditional dances and acoustic music from the 30th of August through to 1st September 2013. Mwezi Wawala is a Malawian phrase meaning ‘the moon is out and shining’ and so let us play and enjoy! Traditionally in Malawi, it is under the moonlight where people sing, dance or sit around a fire to hear stories usually from the elders passing on tradition and culture through narratives, song and dance.
