Photography Exhibition on Afro-Antillean Culture in Panama

Theater & Fine Arts
Photographs by Rose Marie Cromwell
Photographs by Rose Marie Cromwell
“An Afro-Antillean Sentiment: Images from a Panamanian Culture” an exhibition of photographs by Rose Marie Cromwell will be shown at the Diablo Rosso gallery from October 24th to November 25th. Cromwell, a documentary photographer, spent the last year in Panama as a United States Fulbright Grantee. She interviewed and photographed Panamanians of Afro-Antillean descent living in Panama City, Colon, and Bocas del Toro. During the early 20th Century tens of thousands of workers emigrated from the Caribbean to build the Panama Canal. Most never returned to their homelands, but instead settled permanently in Panama. Throughout the past 100 years this Panamanian community has preserved many of their Caribbean traditions despite facing much adversity while cultivating their national identity. Cromwell’s portraits tell the stories and personal anecdotes of Afro-Antillean Panamanians, while exploring themes such as memory, nostalgia, cultural identity and pride. The opening celebration of the exhibition will take place at 7pm, Wednesday the 24th at the Diablo Rosso Gallery, Calle 48, Bella Vista, Panama City. Phone: 399.8825

The Night of the Iguana - Theatre Guild of Ancon

Theater & Fine Arts The Theatre Guild of Ancon will present its fourth production of the 2007 season called THE NIGHT OF THE IGUANA, by Tennessee Williams. The play will run July 12, 13, 14, 19, 20, and 21 at 8:00pm. Pat Quinn, accomplished screen ("Alice" in ALICE'S RESTAURANT), TV and stage actress/director, has returned to Panama to bring this drama to our stage. The wonderful cast of Ed Ward, Betsy Ward, Varoon Anand, Theresa M. Apple, Ximena Cambeforte, Charlotte Arnoux, David Savastuk and Maro Guevara are currently in rehearsal. THE NIGHT OF THE IGUANA is the story of people brought together in a 1965 Mexican hillside resort with their conflicting needs, and their resolve to survive beyond the limits of each one's particular anguish. The play's most poignant moments--scenes of enormous compassion--grow out of the understanding of the characters' mutual needs for companionship and roots and their final surrender to the nobility of Nature. Press quotes: "…Tennessee Williams at the top of his form" – The New York Times "…the most fruitful and versatile exercise by our best living playwright"- New York Journal American Benefit Night: 19 July - American Society RESERVATIONS: 212-0060 E-mail: cellucci@cwpanama.net Tel/Fax: 507-264-4271
