HIFA 2013 | WHAT'S NEXT ...

The HIFA 2013 theme, is “What’s Next…”
This year’s theme reflects our feeling in HIFA of positive progress this year. We are moving in all new directions and are excited by the possibilities ahead of us as a Festival, as a team, as a city, as a country. The theme echoes also the feeling we want our audiences to have at the Festival of what’s the next show, the next dance, the next concert they are going to see.

We chose the colour orange to reflect the dawn of possibility and the warmth of the energy we are experiencing and the colour blue to show the positive blue skies we see ahead for us. The arrows reflect the energy in all directions, like on an iphone or a smart phone – swipe the arrows to go next...>> more

Prudence and Alexio bring you a show entitled Maya Yarira – meaning ‘Life as we see it’.

Expect songs from both artists’ catalogue plus collaborations from this talented duo.


This show will showcase the glamour and glitz produced by local designers through their evening wear / winter collections. Six of Zimbabwe’s top designers will present their next collections to an exclusive HIFA audience in just two shows.
