As Ghana enters its independence weekend, one highly anticipated event on the calendar of activities is the Ghanaian epic theatre, WogbeJeke, which is an exciting performance that enacts the history of Ghana from ancient to modern times through a beautiful mélange of music, dance, drama and poetry.
The performance provides a panoramic view of Ghana’s history from pre to post-colonial times and is a profound and utterly enthralling experience in the country’s heritage
Writer and producer of WogbeJeke, Chief Moomen, has indicated that his over 150 member cast and crew are set to deliver their most impressive performance yet as they attempt to condense over 2000 years of history in 2 hours.
He has expressed strong believe in the power and relevance of his vision to package and present Ghanaian history in ways that elevate the consciousness and confidence of Ghanaians, as well as to sell the nation’s rich heritage to others.
He says his main focus this year is to take the production on tour across the country and to some cities around the world.
WogbeJeke will open at the Accra International Conference Center on the Friday 3rd March as one of the official state events to mark Ghana’s 60th Anniversary. It will then stage at the Amphitheatre of the University of Ghana (Behind Commonwealth Hall) on Saturday 4th March and Sunday 5th March, at 7pm, through the kind sponsorship of Key Soap, who have been supporting the production since its inception in 2015.
