Join Teaching Artist Nothando Zulu at Rum River North County Park for Tales of Trickery and Wit! Nothando recreates colorful characters from African and African-American folktales in this lively performance. Sing a greeting song in Swahili and participate in call and response throughout the performance. Be captivated by the South African story of how a boy and his father defeat the fearsome Abiyoyo the Giant. Listen and laugh along to the adventures of West African trickster Anansi the Spider, or Brer Rabbit, a trickster common in African-American folktales in the South. Witness how stories communicate important lessons on life, family and community.
