African Music and Dance on the Strand stage on Nov. 8

Posted October 31, 2019

Mother Kofi: The Tale of an African Princess, a production of African music and dance by Alphonso Horne, will be presented at the Strand Theatre on Friday, November 8 at 7:30pm. The show will feature dancers from Rockland’s Studio Red.

As part of the Strand Family Series, admission to this show is “Pay-What-You-Can;” ticket prices are set at $20, $10, $5, or $0 per person, so that cost is not a barrier to attend.

Mother Kofi: The Tale of an African Princess is a compilation of musical works with interpretive African dance in tribute to the life of Ghanian princess, activist, and prophetess Laura Adorka Kofi. She believed that she was sent on a mission to travel to America and deliver a message of invitation, union and self-help to people of African ancestry.

Mother Kofi: Tales of an African Princess is made possible in part by a grant from The Maine Arts Commission (MAC), as well as sponsorship support from Rockland Harbor Hotel, Pen Bay Medical Center, the Riley School, Steel House, and Camden National Bank.
