SAVE THE DATE, IT’S COMING SOON!!!
Something big is coming, this production is legendarily wonderful, it is not only freaking sweet but memorable. It’s about AYIYII(Ananse) and the pot of wisdom, a production of African Music, Dance and Dramatic sketches that narrates the traditional folklore about the clever, intelligent, mischievous Ayiyii(Ananse) who outsmarted himself for gathering all the knowledge & wisdom in the world to himself.
