All day
Great Dance  (Exhibits (Museum, Gardens, ...))

A "spiritual masquerade" is the subject of a new photo exhibition in the Heritage Gallery.

"Great Dance" features striking images of the gule wamkulu (pronounced "goolay wumkooloo"), or "great dance," practiced by villagers throughout Malawi, Mozambique and Zambia, in Africa. A gule wamkulu performance brings the community together in times of celebration and of mourning: masked and woven characters represent the ancestors of the people who have come back to the land of the living to instruct the community in proper behavior.
