Play: Aimé Césaire's A Season In The Congo

-A +A


Aimé Césaire's A Season In The Congo opens at the LaMaMa Experimental Theatre, December 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.

Cost: Adult: $18.00
