September 11, 2020 · 5:00 pm EDT · Online
Lewis Center for the Arts; Department of French and Italian; L’Avant-Scène
Franco-Senegalese playwright and dramaturg Penda Diouf reads her most recent play about resilience that is both intimate and political, Pistes (Tracks). Directed by Aristide Tarnagda, this monologue about the courage to come face-to-face with one’s own demons is also a roadtrip across Namibia, site of the first genocide of the 20th century targeting the Herero and the Nama people.
The recently recorded reading will be in French with English subtitles. The virtual event is free and open to the public.
The video recording will be posted on September 11 at 5 PM (EDT) and will be available through Monday, September 14.
