Africa Calling!

By: Grassroots Zimbabwe

Company: Grassroots Theatre Company Zimbabwe

Grassroots Zimbabwe are back following the success of their sell-out show at Fringe 2011! Using traditional Zimbabwean dance, music, rhythm and song, Grassroots bring a fusion of irresistible movement and beautiful melodies to invigorate the spirit and lift the heart and soul. The show brings a wonderfully life-enhancing experience of the culture and exuberance of Zimbabwe. In Africa meeting family is a cause for celebration – and everyone is a brother or sister! Traditional songs, ululations and vibrant dances - these are the greetings reaffirming friendship, camaraderie and the warmth of community. The diversity of these greetings from Southern Africa paint a bigger picture of cultural diversity and joy in extraordinary times. Grassroots is a theatre for development company from Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, specialising in using dance, drama and music for positive change, aiming to reduce poverty through education.
