Critical discourse on the evolving landscape of theatre and its relationship with film in postcolonial Africa - one that centers the lived experiences of African theatre scholars and practitioners - is long overdue. Are traditional theatre spaces becoming obsolete? Or is there still a place for them in our digital age? How should budding theater and performing arts scholars, practitioners, critics, policymakers and even enthusiasts deconstruct, decolonize and de-provincialize cultural representations of Africa in cinemas and artistic performances?

Join the conversation, let’s explore the evolving landscape of theatre and performance in postcolonial Africa through the thought and plays of Ahmed Parker Yerima - one of Nigeria's foremost playwrights, artistic directors and theater scholars!


Date & Time: Friday, 26th July, 2024 | 4pm WAT (West Africa Time) / 10am CST (Central Standard Time) 


- Prof. Ahmed Parker Yerima (Playwright, Scholar, and former Director-General of the National Theatre)
