Monday, November 12, 2018 10:30 AM
We are pleased to announce a Showcase of West African Dance and Drumming that will take place in the Little Theater on November 12th from 10:30 to 11:30 AM.
This is a multicultural and interdisciplinary event featuring renowned dancer, choreographer, and master drummer Maguette Camara with his group Manekadang. The performance should be of interest for all performing arts, communication studies, philosophy, music, and cultural studies classes. Please consider bringing your class or recommending the show to your students.
The program presents a co-curricular activity for Communication Studies, Philosophy of Art, and World Music. It asks students to consider dance and music as a form of communication while at the same time giving them the opportunity to enjoy a world class performance of authentic West African art and culture.
And if you don’t have a class at the time, you won’t regret attending this amazing show.
We are looking forward to seeing you in the audience on November 12th.
