Julia of the Dark Angel Dance group brought the Ist International Contemporary Art Festival to a packed-out No Name Café in Namba on 24th April. Watch this space for details of next year’s instalment!


IMG_3892_editOn the last Sunday in April, the D.A.D. group provided a festival to create an entirely UNFORESEEN show. The acts included both individual performances and collaborations, including several improvisations. The evening also featured artists’ exhibitions and presentations of their work. Art and music mingled in the air, fully occupying the space. The participants had the opportunity to showcase their art and individuality but all were united by a common thread. The audience was captivated by this string of unknown and unexpected performances, delighted by each new surprise; the show ran until midnight.
