A troupe of black actors perform their own Tempest. Cesaire’s rich and insightful adaptation draws on contemporary Caribbean society, the African-American experience and African mythology to raise questions about colonialism, racism and their lasting effects.
Aime Cesaire, who was born in Martinique in 1913, is one of this century's major writers. In his poetry, plays and political activities he has waged a lifelong struggle to restore dignity to colonized people. His best known work is Return to My Native Land first published in 1949 and his Collected Poems are published by the University of California Press.
