About the event
Tekrema Center for Art and Culture and Tekrema Dance Theatre through its founding director Greer E. Mendy has researched and developed a body of work based on African, Louisiana and African Diaspora art and culture for over the past 18 years. We have traveled throughout Louisiana, Africa and The Caribbean to acquire historically accurate information and artistic practices. We have hosted artists from all of these regions in public community workshops in an effort to share the knowledge. The work continues.
We are honored to host Compagnie La Mangrove from Guadeloupe in their tour of Louisiana.
