Presented by the Théâtre À l’Envers Company

Inspired by an African folk tale, this story recounts the difficulties of a small African village trapped by a monstrous thief from the forest, who day after day loots the food warehouse belonging to all the villagers. One day, a girl named Mwana offers to get rid of the giant for the grand chief of the village.

This is the premise of this tale, dramatized with shadows, objects and puppets that make it possible to revisit Jean de Lafontaine’s maxim: “We often need something smaller than ourselves!”

Actors: Patricia Bergeron and Patience Bonheur Fayulu.

On Saturday, Feb.23: Free workshop at our Mississauga campus for children
