Ways of Loving with Aristide Tarnagda

Written by Aristide Tarnagda (Burknia Faso), translated by Heather Jeanne Denyer, directed by Kareem Fahmy

Accused of murder, a woman dreams of the sun, the hills, and the wind while facing trial. She has no right hand with which to promise to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

Presented by the Martin E. Segal Theatre Center, The Graduate Center CUNY.

Aristide Tarnagda studied at Jean-Pierre Guingané’s Théâtre de la Fraternité. In 2013, he directed his own play And if I was going to kill them all Ma’am? on a mainstage at the Avignon Theatre Festival, while another of his plays, Red Earth, was included in the Off-Festival. He is the Artistic Director of the Récréâtrales Festival, one of the largest Pan-African performance festivals, based in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.
