Today we announced the participants for our first residency in Johannesburg, South Africa, taking place from 03 February to 05 February 2017. Having successfully premiered the Progressive Art film in Amsterdam, Johannesburg and Cape Town, the residency at Ants will be the final phase of the film’s tour.
