1 min


Beginning mid-March 2020, COVID-19 pandemic forced isolation and nixing of public events and performances on us due to social distancing requirements. As the President has lifted ban on physical venues, Socharart Ensemble is proud to present its first choreography show of the year “Dark Side”.

The performance is choreographed by Julius Yaw Quansah and produced by special arrangements with Alliance Francaise-Kumasi and Ashanti Poetry Records Inc.

The performance which is a fusion of African contemporary and traditional dance forms is coming to shake Kumasi by whetting audiences gargantuan appetite for a memorable art event in post COVID-19 era.

Dark Side”, tells a true story of an awful experience that happened among colleagues at the same work environment. In some way, it looked like a game play – “You do me, I do you”. The story is enacted through body movements, gestures and expressions in general. It involves live singing, captivating poetry recitals and energetic live drumming of traditional instruments.

Discovering the inner forces of dance-making has never been a stress-free undertaking for choreographers. Not too many artists have explored this area as deeply as the artistic director – a professional traditional and modern dance artist and gifted art teacher.
