  • Description

    In 1988, the celebrated Nigerian novelist, poet, and critic Chinua Achebe, published an essay with the title An Image of Africa, the seminal text is a critique of a certain gaze upon Africa as “the other world.”

    Qudus Onikeku, the current maker in residence of the Center for Arts, Migration and Entrepreneurship will be presenting, during the Achebe | Balwin @40 event organized by the center for African Studies; a dance film he made.

    In this dance film Qudus Onikeku takes us on a choreographic journey in a parallel conversation with Chinua Achebe, as they both paint for us an image of Africa through dance, music, and storytelling.

    The screening will be followed by a Discussion (Q & A) with the presence of Dean Onye Ozuzu and the director of C.A.M.E Osubi Craig.
