Village Minds Production and Alliance Francaise present “AMALE”. Amale as an event will encompass music, drama, spoken word, poetry and dance. The event will happen on the 8TH Day of April, 2017 at Alliance Francaise, Accra at 8 pm prompt.
Amale seeks to question the status quo and make ridicule of the gullible nature of man. Poetry performance, music and hilarious dramatic acts will take center stage as Ghana’s poetry and spoken word performers mount the stage to make you laugh, cry and ask questions. Have you ever been to a funeral and heard a bad comment made about the deceased? Have you ever wondered why people get married? Do you really believe in the efficacy of medicines sold to you at Lorry station and in buses? Well, AMALE will put all the lies on stage and let you do the rest of the thinking.
AMALE is a Ga word which loosely translated means, a lie or Lies. Man has accepted everything without asking questions and such attitude has the tendency of destroying us as a people. Performances will look at very touchy attitudes within the Ghanaian society and ridicule them with the sole purpose of drawing the audience’ attention to the ills of society and provoking them to either eschew or make corrections for the betterment of all.
Ghana as a country has imbibed a habit of celebrating persons when they are long gone and cannot see and appreciate what is being done to honour them. Amale will feature poems from Kofi Awoonor, Kwesi Brew, Attukwei Okai, Kofi Anyidoho, Fiifi Abaidoo amongst others. The performance will also feature Nj Braso, Koo Kumi, Brenda Bakomoro, Koo Kumi, Nene Tetteh Adusu and Selikem Geni.
