In this ritual drama Ama Oforiwaa seeks guidance from her ancestors who began their journey to the Americas as enslaved Africans in Ghana, West Africa. Her story takes the audience through a journey that includes live music and dance, and leads to revelation, reconciliation and renewal. $10 admission.

Walking With My Ancestors is directed by Kim Pereira and produced by Don Shandrow, Executive Director of Coalescence Theater Project.
