Woezo Africa Music & Dance Theatre Inc. is a performing arts organization based in Calgary, Alberta. Founded in 2006, Woezo Africa, meaning “welcome to the land of perfection,” highlights our organization’s desire to bring the uniqueness of the African cultures to the public. With a multidisciplinary approach that blends African music, dance, theatre, and storytelling. Woezo Africa aims to use the combined power of arts and education to host events that promote compassion and understanding.
On September 12, 19 and 26 participants can expect to have three Saturdays filled with traditional African drum and dance performances, stimulating arts and crafts, moving vocal artists and musicians, spirited comedians and spoken word artists, cooking classes, a screening of an award-winning documentary and a presentation of our 2020 digital UNGANISHA dance theatre production all live-streamed in the comfort of your home! With the theme of “Emerge from the Roots,” the festival intends to engage children and adults in activities that showcase unique histories, artistic traditions and cultural expressions to help minority groups find a voice and express their identity.
