Rwandan Dance and Drum Demonstration

We are very excited to present Maurice Habimfura and his troupe partner, Patrick for a Rwandan Drum and Dance Demonstration! Maurice and Patrick are both members of “Ikirenga Cy'Intore”, a Rwandan drum and dance troupe based in East Bayside, Maine.  This group seeks to educate and preserve traditional Rwandan dance culture, which is not traditionally written down and is becoming lost due to the Rwandan Genocide, diaspora, and modern cultural shifts.
Members of the group were Rwandan State Dance Champions before coming to Portland. 

Performers wear traditional Rwandan costume and play on giant handmade drums, while others dance the scenes of hunting, fishing, and other traditional activities. The men, women, and sometimes children take turns depicting different aspects of Rwandan life.

Maurice and Patrick will do a performance and then teach a few dance moves for those that are brave in the audience!

Open to all ages!

For more information about Ikirenga Cy’Intore troup, visit : www.imihamirizo.com

Book Discussion Group: Let's Talk About It!

The library continues its Let’s Talk About It book discussion series, sponsored by the Maine Humanities Council. The theme this time is: Points of View: Understanding Islamic Culture Through Memoirs and Fictional Works. We are very fortunate to have Jo Radner and Sue Lanser leading the discussions.

This month we will discuss the final selection in this series, Dreams of Trespass: Tales of a Harem Girlhood by Fatima Mernissi. Mernissi brings to life her girlhood in Morocco during the 1940s and meditates on a society in flux. Through a series of vignettes, we meet a delightful array of Fatima’s friends and family and follow the narrator’s emergence from the “rule of difference” in her formative- and transformative- years.

Coming up:

June 10: Persuasion by Jane Austen

July 8: The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins

August 12: The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead
