About the Show
The fire crackles, the drums pulse, and everyone listens to two tales magically spun under the great African sky. In Rumpelstilskin, a young queen’s love for her child thwarts the evil intentions of a crooked little man. In Kalulu, a swaggering and boastful hare suffers the consequences of deceit when he tries to swindle a bag of gold from the king. The characters in these two legends create a whirlwind of color and sound, and evoke the magic of triumph of good over evil. The costumes were inspired by the Maasai tribe of East Africa.
