(BEFORE YOU START READING THIS POST SCROLL DOWN TO READ THE LAST SENTENCE-IT’S POSSIBLY GREAT NEWS FOR YOUR REALLY SUPER SUNDAY IN KUMASI….)

HAVE YOU ALWAYS BEEN THINKING OF MAKING AN IMPROMPTU VISIT TO KUMASI-JUST KICKING UP YOUR HEELS AND HEADING TO KUMASI, THE HEART OF GHANA’S CULTURAL TOURISM?

WELL, NOVEMBER 28TH IS THE DAY!

FIRST IT’S AKWASIDAE. THAT’S THE FESTIVAL THAT TAKES PLACE EVERY SIX WEEKS AT MANHYIA PALACE WHEN CHIEFS AND DIGNITARIES FROM ALL OVER GHANA COME TO PAY HOMAGE TO OTUMFUO, ASANTEHENE OSEI TUTU II. IT’S POSITIVELY EXCITING-THE SPLASH OF COLOUR OF VIBRANT KENTE CLOTHE, THE TWIRLING UMBRELLAS, THE BANGS OF ANCIENT MUSKETRY. THE WHOLE EVENT FROM 10:30 AM ONWARDS AT THE PALACE IS A PHOTOGRAPHER’S DREAM!

AND FOUR VILLAGES CHALLENGES YOU TO GET BETTER SHOTS THAN PAST GUESTS ALLIE STESSIN AND DOLA YOUNG.

NEXT ON OUR SUPER SUNDAY, YOU CAN ZIP OVER TO THE ULTRA MODERN BABA YARA STADIUM TO CATCH A PREMIER LEAGUE MATCH BETWEEN KUMASI’S OWN ASANTE KOTOKO AND LEAGUE LEADING CHELSEA. IT STARTS AT 2:00 PM.

OR

IF YOU ARE STILL IN THE TRADITIONAL CULTURE MODE, YOU ARE WELCOME TO JOIN FOUR VILLAGES INN HOSTS THE SCOTTS AT SENFI-BEKWAI FOR THE FUNERAL OF FRIEND AND FORMER BISHOP IN THE METHODIST CHURCH ADJEI-MENSAH.

AND…..VERY CLOSE TO SENFI AT THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY SCHOOL (I. C.S.)ON THE OBUASI ROAD, THE ALLIANCE FRANCAISE OF KUMASI IS SPONSORING AN EVENT-A ONE MAN CIRCUS PERFORMANCE-STARTING AT 6:00 P.M. HERE’S THE DESCRIPTION ON THE A.F. KUMASI WEBSITE. WOW, SOUNDS LIKE QUITE A SHOW!

Circus show “SOLILOQUES”

Sunday, 28th November @ 6PM at @ International Community School (I.C.S)

FREE ENTRANCE

Soliloques? It is circus, but not exclusive. It is surprising but not for what one believes. It is rather a singular company: an aerial equilibrist, a dance, contortion high-wire artist, all these on rare notes of an impromptu piano. Through Soliloques, the Compagnie Singulière continues its investigations within the relation which binds audience and artists, continuing investigations outlined during a preceding work with Fabulous Troubadours. They find here some substance to develop, fertilize and ramify in a way sometimes fascinating and surprising, original and relevant, poetic and political: the ambition and the need for returning in interaction with the spectators lead the actor to verbally attack the audience and to request its participation in order to make it active.


AND AT THE TIME OF POSTING, ONLY ONE ROOM OF FOUR ROOMS AT FOUR VILLAGES INN HAS BEEN BOOKED ON SATURDAY AND SUNDAY….
