Through body percussion, everyday objects and boom whackers, the builders build rhythm and songs to get through their day. This interactive piece concludes with the audience building one giant sound scape. To keep in line with the building theme, our set is created out of Imagination Playground. Our construction workers can work with your students to facilitate a gigantic building experience.
Simama Nami (Stand with Me)
Simama Nami is a salute to African storytelling, as it follows the journey of a rhino, chimp and dung beetle seeking refuge in a cave. Something outside the cave is upsetting the three animals and they must band together with their unique attributes to face their fears and solve their problems. At its heart, Sinama Name is a call to action. We ask our audiences to stand with us, to look after each other, each living creature and the world we live in. This is our world to share.
