Staged Reading: Tale of Black Histories

Fine Arts Building Balcony Theatre (Room 400)

Tale of Black Histories is a 1971 avant-garde Caribbean play created collaboratively under Martinican writer Edouard Glissant's direction, to teach Caribbeans their local histories and culture, excluded from colonial education, and to link their stories with historical heroes, literature, and experiences from across the African diaspora and postcolonial world. The Department of Theatre & Film Studies is hosting a staged reading of the first translation from the French, by Andrew Daily and Emily Sahakian, which will be directed by visiting artist Gilbert Laumord.
