Take a one-month Intensive Course in West African Performing Arts in Africa!
Scholars, students, and artists from around the world will come together this summer to study West African Performing Arts and to explore and train in the origins of West African dance, rhythm and story telling and contemporary African popular entertainment, including African circus skills and masked dancing. The programme will conclude with a final public performance piece. You will learn about the history and context of West African performance – and you’ll have time to explore the town and create and relax on the Atlantic Ocean! The course will take place in Kartong, a village on the coast of The Gambia. Participants will receive a certificate in West African Performance from the University of The Gambia, and 15 university credits.
