Tafuta! A Young Child’s Search for the True Meaning of Kwanzaa
Tafuta! an original musical conceived, written & directed by Shaumba-Yandje Dibinga, blends music, dance and poetry to tell the story of a young child who is bullied in school because of his family’s tradition of celebrating Kwanzaa. The child ultimately embraces his heritage, discovers his own voice and self-empowerment and draws on the strength found in this African American tradition to triumph over the bullies. Tafuta is the only play of its kind and is surely going to make audiences understand the importance of family and traditions. The cast includes children ages 7-16 from all over Massachusetts including students from private, public and charter schools.
Performances: Friday, Dec. 16th at 7pm; Saturday, Dec. 17th at 3pm
