A Presentation About the Herero of Namibia

Please join DGC members and friends at the Undermain Theatre for a performance aimed at understanding the impact of German colonization: "A troupe of young actors gears up to portray the extermination of the Herero tribe of Namibia. They’re passionate. Energetic. They’ve got piles of research. But what do they really know about being black Africans under German colonization? Is it possible to identify with the victims of history? What about the villains? There is danger in the game they’re playing, and fraught racial histories threaten to tear the troupe apart. As the actors dive further in, this inventive new play from Jackie Sibblies Drury (named a “Top Ten” show by New York Magazine) becomes a hilarious and head-spinning nightmare of identity" (Undermain Theatre).

Event details: Friday, April 11, 8:15 pm. Undermain Theatre, 3200 Main Street, Dallas, TX. Meet DGC members and friends in the lobby at 7:30 pm for a shared experience. Book directly with Undermain Theatre by calling to get the special rate of $20.

Please purchase your ticket(s) HERE.

    The German colonization window lasted for about 30 years. Germany was late in the game for reasons well known to us, but left an idelible footprint on its colonies. We are very lucky to have a play bring this multi-faceted topic to the forefront. I hope for a lively discussion over coffee after the show. This is a once in a lifetime event in Dallas!
