Literary Evening

Literary Evening
In most African villages, the story is the same. Public is sitting (by land on mats or stools) in a semicircle facing the storyteller in a way that he can see and be seen any assistance. The time best suited is the evening at dusk (around 18 h – 19 h) night around a fire. This for practical reasons: the day men and women going about their business so that evening they are reunited, the body and rested mind. But also for symbolic reasons, the night is associated with the mother and fertility. Uttering the night is beneficial for the word. The Narrator or storyteller may be the grandfather or the grandmother of the family. Public storyteller is usually a griot or a confirmed traditionalist called "the master of the word. In the spirit of this African tradition, the CAK will convene from 23 October a weekly literary forum in its premises all Thursdays from 19 h to 22 h.
