MASA 2007

 
     
 

SPECIAL EDITION: Peace in Côte d’Ivoire, MASA 2007 for 5 Cities.
July 28 - August 12, 2007

After several postponements because of the socio-political situation in Côte d’Ivoire for three years, MASA (Market African Performing Arts) is back on the African stage in a special edition.

The first part of that event will be an international round table gathering several intellectuals from various fields on the theme « Democracy, Democratic Culture: End-of-Crisis and Peace in Africa », which will be held in Yamoussoukro from July 23 to 27, 2007.

The final dates and venues for the shows are now known:

a) Abidjan: from July 28 to August 11, 2007, for theatre, creation dances and music.

b) The other cities (Bouaké, Korhogo, Man, Daloa): from August 9 to 12, 2007, for music.

While keeping its traditional market, festival and meetings for professionals for performing arts features, the 2007 program of MASA provides new African creations in theatre, dancing and music.

In order to highlight the special feature of this Special Edition, this choice made by the International Selection Committee of MASA with its usual rigor, will be shortly completed with an additional list comprising many Ivorian and African renowned musicians who have agreed to come as a token of solidarity to Côte d’Ivoire and Africa.

This program is provisional. It is made up of 23 selected artistic troupes from 17 African countries including: 9 in theatre, 4 in creation dancing and 10 in music.

The final program, especially for music, will be release later on.
