THE ALLIANCE Française in Accra will on Wednesday, June 27, host ‘Identity’, a contemporary dance performance by the Socharart Ensemble, which is based in Accra.
The organisers said, “With subtle and swift movements alongside an informative scenography, the production evokes the deeper symbolism of this identity, which unfolds in a dramatic way as the piece progresses. The dancers, without doubt, will grab the attention of the audience as they move in unison and separately.”
A release copied to the DAILY HERITAGE said there would be choreography by Julius Quansah, and the piece centres on the challenges and conditions that placed him on a trajectory of locating his identity in the world of dance while revealing the process of self-discovery as he moves deeper and deeper into the dance circuit.
Educated at the University of Ghana (Legon), Quansah has performed with several groups in Ghana, including Ntentan Dance Company, Noyam African Dance Institute, Yaqale Art Alliance, Centre for National Culture Group and Ijovudu Dance International.
Quansah, who is also a teacher/costume designer, has been involved in a number of local and international workshops and worked extensively with foreign-based choreographers and groups while teaching various forms of traditional Ghanaian dances.
