Meet the ‘Voices of Strength’

A group of African performers/choreographers are visiting Seattle this week, readying for “Voices of Strength,” a two-night program at The Moore Theatre that they’ve been taking around the country. The mini-festival includes women from Mali, Morocco, South Africa, Mozambique and Cote d’Ivoire, who present themes both personal and political in their work. Those wanting to learn more are invited to a panel this week with women from Africa who “are creating and leading successful arts organizations in their countries.” Valerie Curtis-Newton, head of directing and head of performance at University of Washington, will moderate. Doors open at 5 p.m. Wednesday, conversation starts at 5:30 (African drummers perform from 5-5:30.), Walker Ames Room, Kane Hall, University of Washington.
