Awesome Antwerp would receive two thumbs up if I weren’t holding the camera!

A Cosmopolitan City On A Human Scale
I am truly in my element in this city. The high degree of friendliness, architectural wonders, excellent public transportation, cultural places of interest and multi-ethnic English speaking population all rank high in my assessment of this lively and fun city.

Look Who Was Promoting His European Tour On The BBC!
One of my guilty pleasures in Europe is watching hours of BBC and TV5 Monde. The program host talked with Stevie Wonder about his ardent support for Barack Obama and suggested he be appointed Minister of Music in the Obama cabinet. I’d support that!

After this program I watched a terrific 1-hour Elton John concert special. Later in the evening, I tuned into BBC Africa, which I don’t think is available in the states.

CONFERENCE ON AFRICAN AND AFRO-CARIBBEAN PERFORMANCE

Posted in Culture, Events on September 15, 2008 by skyeviewtraveler

Hosted by the Dept. of Theater, Dance and Performance Studies, University of California, Berkeley

As studies of African and Afro-Caribbean performance have acquired a wider relevance during the last decade, it is now time to examine the diverse critical approaches currently being practiced within these fields. How are African and Afro-Caribbean cultures being constructed, analyzed, and re-imagined by recent discussions about theatricality, transnationalism, diaspora, translation, Circum-Atlantic exchanges, or cyberspaces? The conference’s program will bring together a diverse array of presenters from Africa, the Caribbean, Europe, and the United States who deal with topics that include–among others–dance, drama, community theater, the links between social justice and performance, rituals, religious events, diasporas, carnival, and intercultural barterings.

REGISTRATION IS FREE, BUT WE DO NEED YOU TO REGISTER so we have an accurate attendance count for planning purposes. For more information, see our conference website at www.berkeleytdps.org.
Thank you!
