I’m delighted to announce a new multimedia performance for families at Home Manchester's Push Festival 2021
Join me for Tales from the Congo Basin on Fri 29 Oct 2021 by booking tickets here. https://homemcr.org/production/tales-from-the-congo-basin/
Home say: This interactive session uses music and storytelling to gently explore climate change and its links to colonialism, race and migration.
Audience members will be encouraged to join in with the traditional songs including call and response, clapping, body percussion and hear music and stories from the region.
The Congo Basin is an amazing place. It spans 6 countries and is home to the second largest rainforest on Earth, and the world’s deepest river. It is rich in wildlife, including gorillas, forest elephants, hippos, bonobos and okapis.
This Performance will be followed by a Q&A with Emmanuela and artist-activist, Kooj Chuhan.
This will be a thought-provoking discussion about the ways in which colonialism, conflict, race and migration connect with climate change.
Originally developed as part of Horizons Festival and presented in association with CAN (Community Arts Northwest).
