USA – Friends of the Condo – A Season in the Congo, Dec. 19 – 22, 2013

This program celebrates the 100th anniversary of the birth of the famed
poet, playwright and politician.  Césaire's profoundly poetic tragedy
chronicles the meteoric rise and fall of Patrice Lumumba, the first prime minister of the newly independent Republic of Congo in 1960.

Césaire's transformative aesthetic evokes intense political drama.  In A Season in the Congo,
surreality subtends historiography; splicing film, dance, music, and
poetry, this awareness-raising production revives the impact of the Patrice Lumumba, "the poet leader who lights the fire of Africa." The production is directed by Rico Speight.

Adult: $18.00   

Student/Senior: $13.00
