A contemporary dance show and theatrical play are two main activities expected form part of the observation of International Francophone Month in Dominica.
Francophone Month is slated for March.
According to director of Alliance Francaise de la Dominique, Carole Bogdanovscky, activities for the month are expected to be cultural, spiritual and educational.
She added that the contemporary dance show will be done by a group of artistes from Guadeloupe on Saturday 9th, March at the Arawak House of Culture.
In addition, a theatrical play entitled “Notebook of a Return to my Native Land” is slated for the 24th of March and will be acted out by renowned French actor, Jacques Martial.
Another play, “A Temptest,” which was written by French poet Aime Cesaire, will be acted out by a cast of both French and Dominican actors. Auditions for the roles will take place on Friday the 8th at 5pm at Alliance Française.
Cultural advisor Alwin Bully said the the play will be used as a method of exposing Dominicans, more specifically the youth, to a poetic type of theatre and as a way of recognising the works of the deceased poet whom Bully described as a true Caribbean person.
Other activities to commemorate International Francophone month include a Francophone Food Fair on March 17th, an exposition, a Mademoiselle Francophone Pageant, and Francophone Day.
