The School Of Performing Arts of the University of Ghana and the School of Education o the University of Glasgow today cut the sword as today marked the opening of a week long program. This Program, Early Career Researcher Development week is on the topic ‘Performing Languages and Languaging Performance’. This event starts from today the 5th September, 2016 to the 10th of September, 2016.

The opening day saw the likes of some lecturers from the School of Performing Arts and the Dean himself Prof. Kofi Agekum. Prof Agekum took the floor as he took the opportunity to welcome his colleagues from the University of Glasgow, UK. He said that this workshop is going to run for three [3] years and that this was the second Edition.

Prof Alison Phipps used poetry in outlining and describing the work that will be undertaken. Mr. Gameli also took turns and refreshed the minds of the audience with some sweet soothing master class poem.

Then Association of the Students of Performing Arts came in to give an awesome performance which got the audience shaking their heads and some of them dancing as they gave the performers money. The performance included ‘Adowa’ dance and a song to complement the dance. Ayuba Huud also a student of the School Of Performing Arts performed one of his own poetry and it was superb.

Prof Phipps took this opportunity to introduce her colleagues by making them introduce themselves in their mother tongues and translating it for the audience.

The program is filled with performances from dance, drama and music. This evening we are going to witness the musicals of ‘The Marriage of Anansewa’ originally written by Efua Sutherland and directed by Sam Edmundson Junior.

Make the Efua Sutherland Drama Studio Your home this week and you will never regret it.
