The Pan African Historical Theatre Festival

The Pan African Historical Theatre Festival, commonly known as PANAFEST was mooted by the Late Efua Sutherland in the mid-1980s as a cultural vehicle for bringing Africans on the continent and in the Diaspora together around the issues raised by slavery which remain suppressed. PANAFEST addresses the most traumatic interruption that ever occurred in the natural evolution of African societies which among other traumas, profoundly eroded the self- confidence and freedom for self-determination of a whole people. These constitute an impediment to the progress of Africans and must be laid to rest. Ghana’s coastline is dotted with large, now silent memorials to over 500 years of this most turbulent era in Africa’s history The festival consciously makes them a site for confronting the effects of enslavement, purging the pain of Diaspora, acknowledging the residual effects of the trade on the Continent and re-uniting to forge a positive future in the contemporary global environment
