Lovers of theatre were treated to a gripping performance of Zakiya Iman Markland’s play La Négrophilie at the Frank Collymore Hall last week.

Markland, a Jamaica-born actress collaborated with Argentine director and choreographer Tatiana Pandiani in her one-woman performance portraying the life and work of renowned American-born French performer and activist Josephine Baker.

Argentine Ambassador Gustavo Martinez Pandiani welcomed guests to the first night of the two-night presentation attended by several Members of Parliament, members of the diplomatic corps, representatives of international organisations, officials from the National Cultural Foundation and a host of other invitees.
