African Safari

September 22

The African Safari program consists of a series of adaptable performances aimed at providing a better understanding of the African continent. It includes A Day in Africa (geography, culture, and lifestyle), Folktales from Africa (authentic stories, poems, and sayings), Echoes of Africa (music and dance), and African Art (carvings, clothing, and instruments). Mostly performed for children, a main goal of these performances is to encourage a more tolerant attitude towards cultural differences.
