Westminster College presents the Kuntu Repertory Theatre, Pittsburgh's oldest Black theatre company, Wednesday, Sept. 6, at 7 p.m. in Beeghly Theater.
The troupe will present "Keepers of the Dream," a multi-media celebration of African-American Women's significance in our lives, hopes, and dreams. Keepers is not a traditional play, but a piece driven by a theme not a plot, and is interactive with words shared directly with the audience.
Kuntu is a Bantu word that means "way" or "mode." Kuntu Repertory Theatre's mission is to examine Black life from a sociopolitical-historical perspective, and to combine the salient features of theatre that educates, entertains, and moves both performers and audiences to social action.
The production is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Dr. Neal Edman, dean of student affairs, at (724) 946-7113.
