TIPS FROM A FESTIVAL GURU NO READMITTANCE

Don’t forget that if you leave a venue during a performance you will not be re-admitted until the show is finished. This applies to all venues including Telecel Main Stage.

EARLY BIRDS

Book in advance for the shows you want to see. Popular artists will sell out! Use the programme, the website and the facebook page to work out the schedule of shows you want to see well in advance, then GO AND BUY YOUR TICKETS!

TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE

Shows at HIFA start on time, so be punctual to avoid being turned away! Arrive ahead of the pack, as stragglers will not be admitted once shows have begun. Remember that HIFA doesn’t do refunds, so give yourself enough time to experience the acts you want to see or hear.

SHHHHHH!!!

Audiences are there to hear the music, not a chorus of ringtones, so make sure your cell phones are switched off! At the indoor shows, stay in your seats and keep quiet.

BE WARM

The evening shows at Telecel Main Stage, Lay's Global Stage and Coca-Cola Green can get a bit chilly, so dress warmly! It is late autumn/early winter in Zimbabwe and so cool evenings, possible rain and cold winds are expected.

ARE YOU SITTING COMFORTABLY?

Feel free to bring along chairs and picnic blankets to appropriate Telecel Main Stage shows. To avoid confusion and sightline problems, those with chairs must find a spot on the right side of the grass arena facing the stage, whilst their lower lying, picnicking companions sitting on the grass should keep to the left of the arena. Be warned that some shows will attract large standing audiences so leave chairs, picnics and blankets at home and feast on the atmosphere instead.

HIFA 2014

04

I am so proud to call myself a part of the incredibly creative group of people who make HIFA happen each year. We are an agile team and Board who adapt and evolve constantly to serve the needs of the Festival that we all love. Stepping back in as HIFA’s Artistic Director for this year is a reminder that making things happen in Zimbabwe relies on a community of people who believe in the future of the country. In the case of HIFA, we all also firmly believe in the role of the arts to address apathy and cynicism, to connect us to a global community of creative thinkers, and to switch on a light in the minds and hearts of each one of us.

of our audiences’ artistic interests, and the dynamic cultural diversity of our community. A warm welcome and congratulations to all artists participating in HIFA 2014!

The programme this year is amazing in so many ways – diverse, innovative, prestigious and adventurous. It demonstrates the broad range

MANUEL BAGORRO

SWITCH ON – as the incoming Chairman of the HIFA Board of Trustees, this theme resonates with me. The boundless enthusiasm with which the advent of HIFA is viewed each year is amazing. SWITCH ON invites all of us to see ourselves as patriotic Zimbabweans in a new way. We have the innate strength within ourselves to transform our communities in order to radiate something truly positive. What a wonderful call to action. I am acutely aware of the invaluable work which has been undertaken by the Board of Trustees, in close conjunction with the HIFA Management Team. All sorts of daunting hurdles have been overcome by the indefatigable Management Team, ably led by Maria Wilson, and culminated in the production of the most exhilarating HIFA programme to date. However, this is not the end of the story because without the co-operation of various champions of the HIFA cause, this Festival

would not have come to fruition. Accordingly, I would like to extend my heart-felt thanks to our corporate partners, Government Ministries, Embassies, Donors, Security Agents, the National Arts Council, the City of Harare, the Media and other stakeholders for their unstinting support of the Festival. Zimbabwe is an incredibly resilient country. I know that the distinctly warm Zimbabwean hospitality will be extended to all local and international artistes who will be performing during this year’s edition of HIFA. We are so proud to have the artistes as an integral part of this spectacular initiative which not only unifies our people but also lifts their spirits in an unprecedented way. In conclusion, I would like to simply say to all our stakeholders let’s SWITCH ON and have a GREAT FESTIVAL. MUCHADEYI MASUNDA Chairman of the HIFA Board of Trustees

If ever there was a year that I felt we were going to have to postpone HIFA, it was this one. The Festival has been struggling to survive and it is only through the passion, compassion and determination of the HIFA Team that it is still alive. The theme SWITCH ON is therefore very appropriate to HIFA’s situation. There is so much apathy around us and a real element of not caring about each other or important initiatives, such as HIFA, that are so obviously struggling to continue. We truly need to SWITCH ON as a people and take a definite interest in our surroundings, our streets, each other, our country and its future. I have the honour of working with the most SWITCHED ON team of Zimbabweans. My appreciation for them and what they achieve is huge. The Zimbabwean corporate community is likewise SWITCHED ON to HIFA, not only as a mutually beneficial initiative, but as a national enterprise whose importance to community and artistic development cannot be underestimated. I strongly encourage HIFA audiences to take

note of these companies and give them the support they so richly deserve. SWITCH ON to the Diplomatic and Donor community – they continue to show support of the Zimbabwean people and contrary to what may be said about them, do care a great deal about our country and her people. The Media continues to symbiotically work with HIFA and show that nation-building is not only in the realm of politics. Appreciation and encouragement of HIFA is the definite remit of the HifAmigos – what a collection of SWITCHED ON and active Zimbabweans who believe in our country and show it affirmatively through their support of HIFA. The Festival’s new Chairman, Muchadeyi Masunda has proved a tower, not only of strength, but wisdom. He and the HIFA Board of Trustees have offered invaluable help and advice to myself and the rest of the Team. To all of you, HIFA artists and public in whatever form – join us for a celebration of our country. SWITCH ON to HIFA 2014. MARIA WILSON - EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Our theme this year is an invitation to seek out the light in darkness, and to explore the capacity of each one of us to illuminate and enlighten through our commitment to the arts. Let’s change our world - one vivid, luminous, transformative arts experience at a time, beginning at HIFA this year…. HIFA 2014 – SWITCH ON

BancABC Day 7.30PM Telecel Main Stage

LIGHT UP THE DARKNESS The HIFA 2014 Opening Show on Telecel Main Stage Presented by BANCABC in association with HIVOS HIFA’s spectacular Opening Show draws inspiration from our theme this year, from the resilience of Zimbabwe’s artistic community, from our communal search for enlightenment, and from Doris Lessing’s story, ‘The Sun Between Their Feet’ which tells of the repeated determined attempts of two dung beetles to scale the heights of a rock with their precarious cargo… Featuring musicians and dancers appearing in several HIFA 2014 shows including A Simple Space, Remix Culture, and Tumbuka’s two programmes, as well as performers

from Barefeet Theatre Zambia and Zimbabwe’s Drum Café. With Musical Direction by Steve Dyer, the show is anchored by the incredible artistry of South African jazz pianist, Kyle Shepherd, who will be joined by Zimbabwean and South African jazz stars in a performance that ignites light in the darkness, contemplation in chaos and redemption in struggle. “Kyle Shepherd is taking the Cape jazz sounds to new heights fusing his personal journey of discovery along the path of history.” Eric Alan, Jazz Presenter, Jazz Rendevouz, Radio 2000, SABC

The show is directed by Brooke Ciardelli, a multiple award-winning American theatre director, as well as Founder and former Artistic Director of Northern Stage, Vermont. Staging Design by Heeten Bhagat and Carine Tredgold. “The people that are trying to make the world worse never take a day off, why should I? Light up the darkness.” Bob Marley

Hailed by the New York Times for his “robust voice, agility and confidence,” tenor ROBERT MCPHERSON sang Lord Percy with Welsh National Opera in Anna Bolena this season. His performance in Der Rosenkavlier with San Francisco Opera prompted the San Francisco Chronicle to exclaim that he “brought the first act to a stunned stop with his strikingly beautiful account of the Italian Tenor’s aria.”

The Zimspiration choir, trained by Kundisai Mtero, will join the soloists in several well-known choruses. The Gala will be accompanied by string players from the Amici Quartet performing in the HIFA 2014 classical music programme presented by KPMG, double bass player Marike Prins and percussionists Dylan Tabisher and Cherilee Adams, led by the astonishing pianist, conductor and Musical Director, Jerry Steichen.

“With a voice spun of pure 24 Karat Gold” soprano ALISON BUCHANAN has thrilled audiences around the world. “An artist of considerable vigor and dramatic intensity..... there is a warmth and sense of intimacy to her singing, shaping melodies with extraordinary grace.” San Francisco Chronicle

Thursday 01 May Stanbic Bank Day 7pm Telecel Main Stage

Dobet Gnahoré MUSIC

Presented by Stanbic Bank in association with the European Union Singer, dancer and percussionist from the Ivory Coast, Dobet Gnahoré inherited the force of the “Bété“ tradition from her father, Boni Gnahoré, a master percussionist who plays with the Abidjan-based Ki-Yi Mbock Company, directed by Werewere Liking. From Mandingue melodies to Congolese rumba, from Ivory Coast Ziglibiti to Cameroon Bikoutsi, from Ghanian High-Life to Zulu choirs, Dobet's music is varied and colourful. Her poly-national band adds sanza, balafon, calebasse, bongos, guitar and vocal backup to Dobet’s warm and powerful voice.

Widely considered one of contemporary African music’s most exciting talents, Dobet has astounded audiences with her thrilling stage presence, appealing melodies, delicate ballads, upbeat African grooves and powerful singing. If you missed the performance of this fantastic artist at HIFA 2008, don't make the same mistake this year. SWITCH ON!


09

Presented by Coca-Cola in association with the South African Embassy and HIVOS

One of the biggest names in current South African music jets in for HIFA, accompanied by her phenomenal band. Latoya Buthelezi, aka Toya Delazy’s success story is an extraordinary one. From obscure beginnings in the little known eMahlabathini, Kwazulu Natal, Toya’s fame has skyrocketed, from her first mega-hit “Pump it On” and record deal signing with Sony Music Africa in 2011, to her SAMA award in 2013. She comes to HIFA having just been nominated for music video of the year at this year’s SAMA for her poignant smash hit “Memoriam”, to join her previous Channel O and BET nominations. Both a singer and a pianist, Toya’s performance repertoire ranges from delicate, soulful love songs to upbeat rocking dance tunes, songs which many audience members will be familiar with thanks to her widespread airplay on regional radio and television. Her music has been called a mixture of jazz, electro and hip-hop, with a healthy South African flavour. Something of a fashion icon too, Toya looks every bit a star. Do not miss this spectacular opportunity to see this marriage of fame and talent.

JOSEPHINE

Presented by British Council

“Stunning” – Sunday Times Culture “A versatile and substantial new talent” – Mojo “Fabulous” – The Guardian Once in a while, an artist emerges who commands public attention, surpassing genres and boundaries. Sit up, and take notice of a British artist with so much lucent passion and inimitable talent, she is attracting the ecstatic attention of reviewers and fans throughout the world. Manchester’s soulful chanteuse, Josephine, recalls ‘the Queen of gospel’, Mahalia Jackson’s distinctive contralto, yet behind the powerful delivery is a husky undercurrent making every replaying seem like a personal performance. Whether accompanied by stripped-back piano, or playing a fast-paced bossa-nova infused jaunt, she’s equally awe-inspiring. Josephine makes her HIFA Debut on Lay’s Global Stage with her equally remarkable band. “stunning newcomer” – The Sun “A striking talent” – The Mirror

Black bazar

(Congo/France)

MUSIC

Presented by Golden Pilsener

Black Bazar is led by musicians Modogo Abarambwa and Sam Tshintu, two remarkable artists on the Congolese music scene. The singers accepted writer Alain Mabanckou’s challenge: to take rumba back to its roots and reject the machines and programming that have done so much to water down today’s Congolese (and African) music. In other words, to revive a genre that was originally intended as dance music, but is also a delight to listen to.

Black Bazar’s music is full of atmosphere and deeply rooted in musical tradition, while also opening up a distinctive new dimension, described by the German press as “Dancehall Rumba”. The sounds of Kinshasa, Brazzaville, Praia and Lagos come together alongside the traditional rhythms and beats that have set the nightclubs of the African diaspora on fire. Don’t miss this opportunity to dance the night away; authentic Congolese rumba, under the stars on Telecel Main Stage.

Influenced by Brenda Fassie and Nina Simone, it was Chiwoniso who mentored, encouraged and launched RUE. Playing what is best described as ‘afro mbira rock fusion’, her powerful vocal delivery, with Vibe Culture’s rich and layered arrangements, have quickly gained recognition, attracting a growing following. RUE’s HIFA show, titled “Musha uno “is about celebrating womanhood, and the emotional journey of one particular woman who bravely confronts her demons. Part music, part theatre, this artistic happening brings together art forms and powerfully imaginative collaborators.

Karl Jenkins Stabat Mater

Presented with the assistance of British Council ..and the Mother did weep...

Paul Colman returns to HIFA for another modern choral performance, Karl Jenkins’s Stabat Mater. From the moment the choir opens with the line ‘stabat mater dolorosa’ (the sorrowful Mother was standing) this beautiful and profound work takes the listener on a journey through one of the most poignant medieval poems, a meditation on the suffering of Mary during the crucifixion of Her Son. The poem is woven around six other texts, some from ancient sources, in a variety of languages. Jenkins says of his music “if I had to describe it, I would say that it sounds like nothing else, which is very satisfying”. Featuring American mezzo-soprano Krysty Swann, the Amici String Quartet, Will McNicol (guitar), Jeanette Micklem (piano), Ruth Chard (organ and chorus coach), percussionists Aldo Aranda, Dylan Tabisher and Cherilee Adams, and a choir that brings together Harare’s finest singers.

HIFAMIGOS


Shining a Light For Artists and the Community Switched On Networks HIFA believes in the communal spirit of togetherness and assistance in artistic endeavours. Consequently, HIFA is a member of a number of networks that promote African artistic industry activities. HIFA is a member of the African Music Festivals Network, The Firefest Route (Southern African Festival Tour Circuit) and the Zimbabwe Festival Network. As was the case last year, 2014 will once again see festival directors, administrators and producers from around the world congregating at HIFA for a Festival Directors’ GetTogether. The aim is to promote networking and also scouting of artists, particularly Zimbabwean artists, by visiting decision makers from other festivals, thus promoting Zimbabwean talent beyond the country’s borders.

Switching on Talent HIFA will again host a wide range of workshops, supported by the United Nations Zimbabwe, for the general public as well as master classes for creative industry professionals. The public workshops are important for the fostering of a greater appreciation of the Arts within audiences whilst they get an opportunity to interact more closely with the very stars they would be coming to see perform on HIFA stages. Artistic cross-pollination from master classes are another way in which HIFA fulfils its mandate of promoting greater cross-cultural interaction resulting in novel creative enterprises. HIFA also actively assists various Zimbabwean artistic endeavours throughout the year, particularly other festivals. HIFA regularly lends (at no cost) equipment, and offers advice and expertise to assist in the staging of these artistic activities that are independent of HIFA. Additionally the Festival holds workshops and discussion groups with artists in order to address problems, share possible solutions, and work together towards more dynamic artistic development. In conjunction with Old Mutual, HIFA will facilitate workshops for Zimbabwean artists that seek to impart financial management skills that are so critical in any creative sector. This is a continuation of Old Mutual’s Financial Literacy programme launched at HIFA 2013 and aimed at ordinary members of the public which has since spread to other parts of the country.

United Nations  Zimbabwe

Switched On Youth Since its inception, HIFA has placed the youth at the core of its activities and organisational structure. The Festival has always drawn its largest contingent of event staff from ‘A’ level students and school-leavers. This has been part of its efforts at empowerment of young people and employment creation. Through their Festival involvement, these young Zimbabweans are trained and given work experience to equip them to be creative productive citizens. Young people will also have a highly secure, dedicated Festival area in which they can enjoy performances and workshops. This area, the Simba Youth Zone, will also feature performances from schools and young artists from around the country.

Festival of Health HIFA , and the Arts generally, lends itself naturally to positive community engagement. In conjunction with the United States President’s Emergency Plan For AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), HIFA 2014 will be using the Arts as a creative medium through which to spread the message of the importance of positive living. The PEPFAR First Street Stage in Harare’s First Street Mall will feature both HIFA 2014 artists as well as celebrity health message ambassadors who work with PEPFAR partners. Performances on this stage happen during each lunchtime of the Festival week, offering access to those with too little time or financial resources to enter the Festival site. This message of positive steps towards looking after one’s health will also be carried on HIFA uniforms and through various activities by people affirmatively endorsing the idea of positively being healthy.

Switched On To Community Needs HIFA always strives to support its host city, the City of Harare, in efforts towards promoting urban regeneration. HIFA actively supports the concept of the infrastructural integrity within the City as this also impacts on HIFA venues. In 2014, HIFA will engage in several efforts towards community assistance and infrastructure rejuvenation: Trash collection by previously unemployed youths HIFA is piloting a project in which push carts will be used by youths to collect rubbish in several test areas in Harare’s high density suburbs. Not only is this pilot exploring potential employment sources as the youths, though they are volunteers, will receive modest stipends, but they will also be contributing to health promotion through public sanitation. Free Public Toilet for Women Public ablution facilities in Harare are somewhat overburdened and those bearing the brunt of this burden are women. HIFA is working with the City of Harare on availing a renovated public lavatory dedicated for the use of women. It is hoped this will be a pilot that will see such renovation of facilities on a larger scale. Assistance in Rejuvenation of ZIMCADA centre There is a great need for addressing the issue of drug abuse which has become more rampant especially amongst the youth – which is a social group on which HIFA has always placed special focus. HIFA will work with City of Harare on not only the regeneration of the Zimbabwe Council for Alcohol and Drug Abuse (ZIMCADA) premises but also in exploring ways in which Art Therapy can be incorporated into drug rehabilitation efforts.

Apart from the endeavours carried out in conjunction with the City of Harare, HIFA will be working with its Green Partner, Environment Africa, in conducting environmental awareness activities. Environment Africa will have a team on the HIFA site that will be separating waste generated by the Festival. Environment Africa will also be engaging visitors to the Festival site in general environmental awareness campaigns. Members of HIFA’s loyalty programme, the HifAmigos, have also independently started a crowd sourcing initiative to raise funds for the purchasing of learning and related material for school children affected by the floods that occurred earlier in parts of Zimbabwe such as Tsholotsho and Tokwe-Mukorsi . At HIFA our intention is to SWITCH ON to what is going on around us and not stand back waiting for something to happen. We see this as being the start of many such initiatives with more partners.

HIFA is also training 70 street youths to be part of the event staff as in previous years. Not only are the youths trained in job-specific matters but they also receive life skills training from various professionals – HIFA will be working with PEPFAR in this regard. P

Supported by driving live percussion and presented so intimately that you can feel the heat, hear every breath, and be immersed in every moment. “Be prepared to have your breath taken away” Three Weeks The audience is brought in close to surround the stripped stage. In that space the acrobats are pushed to the physical limit, breaking down their usual guards and introducing the reality of vulnerability. “Stripped back and raw… an aweinspiring display of strength, skill and creativity.” The Advertiser

Considered “a total triumph” by The Guardian, this jaw-dropping show sold out its seasons at both the Adelaide and Edinburgh Fringe in 2013. “Mind-blowing physical theatre” Talk Fringe 5-star reviews from Broadway Baby, The New Current, Three Weeks, Edinburgh Guide, The List and Fest Magazine Winner: Best Circus - Adelaide Fringe Festival Weekly All Ages.

THE BIG GAME An invitation to enter an absurd world of games that have been made up and are played out by four dancers on stage in real time. The various games expose the emotional world of the dancers and the power relations between them. As the performance is created during the show, the rules of the choreographic game are exposed and the relationship between the performers and the audience is challenged. The audience is invited to take part in the piece and influence the evolution of the game.

The National Ballet of Zimbabwe presents

The piece raises questions about the purpose of the game, who sets the rules and how these rules influence the interaction between the players, how far the players would go to achieve a desired outcome, and what happens if the rules are broken. It questions our sense of free choice and understanding of responsibility as players in our own personal and social games. NU12.

ATTACHED

DANCE

A circus show about holding on and letting go Presented by Swedish Cultural Council and Embassy of Sweden The human domino effects, how one person’s actions can colour another person’s life, are sometimes impossible to control. These two artists are hopelessly connected – when one falls, the other flies! Their two separate actions create a single rhythm, and the audience shares the responsibility for what happens next, uniting total strangers in a unique experience. Everything and everyone is attached in this circus performance – and there is no escape! In this brand new show, Magmanus explore new techniques, constructions, and the laws of gravity. ATTACHED is a show that will stick with you... Created and performed by: Magnus Bjøru and Manu Tiger. Directed by: Jay Gilligan

LES CLIQUETS Featuring famed Belgian slack rope circus performers, Nadège Liénard and Enrico Astegiano. Like skylights, three scenes reveal the many ways to support and bear each other.

Presented by Embassy of the Republic of Korea

The Little Red Flower Art Troupe

DANCE

Presented by Embassy of the People’s Republic of China

This is a unique opportunity to experience the world famous Nanjing Little Red Flower Art Troupe, which has been a sensation across China for several generations. For HIFA 2014, the 22 young singers, dancers and musicians, aged between 6 and 12, perform a varied programme of traditional folk and pop melodies, Chinese compositions, and classic songs from all over the world. The troupe has won various awards at national children’s dance and music competitions, and toured over 20 countries and regions in Asia, Europe, America and Africa. Don’t miss this joyful and exuberant cultural experience. All ages.

He enters wearing an oversized orange hat and sunglasses, carrying a toolbox and a walking stick. From the toolbox he takes out a saw and a drill, saws off the end of the walking stick, drills holes in it, and hey presto, it’s a flute – which he plays beautifully. He invites a woman from the audience to dance, then puts a rose in the end of the flute before handing it to her. Gong Myoung, Korea’s globally celebrated musical export believe that if you can bash it and make a noise, you can make it sing. They create mood and harmony hitting a stone block with hollow bamboo pipes, or playing an empty water cooler as a drum. These gifted and versatile musicians might lay down a South American dance beat as guitar meets maracas and pan pipes. Horns and a didgeridoo conjure wild horses. Then the tempo slows right down with guitar and flute. They perform with breathtaking timing, speed, passion, stamina and almost terrifying force in the seoljanggu, recreating the ebb and flow of a storm, their hands flying from one end of the drum to the other in a blur. Don’t worry if you don’t know a thing about Korean music, if you don’t know your jing from your janggu. In case you hadn’t gathered, Gong Myoung mix traditional music with innovative, contemporary sounds to create a style that’s highly entertaining. They encourage plenty of audience participation, and their love of music and sense of fun is totally infectious. ALL AGES. AWARDS KBS National Classical Music Awards Best Group
