In 2008, after much traveling and searching in Ghana West Africa, I was commissioned by The Canadian High Commission in Ghana to create and present a new work as part of the International Festival “Le Semaine de La Francophonie 2008”.

I teamed up with local Cultural Troupe Okotobrigya and worked fast and furiously at the National Arts Centre in Accra, Ghana.
The piece was performed to a full global audience on Wednesday March 2008 at Alliance Francaise in Accra.
