A Hand Theatre Journey to Africa

This is a hand theatre workshops for children and parents. Using hand theatre exercises, singing and playing we make an imaginary journey to Africa, where we spend one day with African children on the countryside, their tasks and adventures. The exercises are simple but they trigger everyone, small as big, to use imagination and find out the vast capacity of expression in our hands.
