Event Description

 

“Walking With My Ancestors: Elmina Castle” (2014) involves a small ensemble that explores the experiences of the forgotten women, men, and children who once languished in the former dungeons for enslaved Africans in Ghana’s Elmina Castle. Through live drumming, singing, dancing, and acting the performers unfold how today’s racial and cultural problems connect with truths of our shared and painful pasts. It is based on original, first-hand research conducted at the former dungeons.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This production contains situations that may make some uncomfortable.
