During the last fifty years, those working in the cultural sectors in African countries have attempted to write history by organising festivals. Under banners such as 'Reclaiming the African Past' and 'African Renaissance', they have used the performing arts to address a variety of topical issues and to confront images embedded by a century of patronising colonial expositions.
