Young People’s Theatre (YPT) spans time and distance with “Travelling Tales”, from Quebec’s boundary-breaking Théâtre Motus. This online production is available in both English and French for homes and classrooms, and is recommended for ages 5-9 (Grades SK-Gr. 4). It features four performers bringing three stories to life, of West African, Mohawk and French-Canadian heritage. The traditional oral storytelling is an imaginative blend of puppetry, masks, music and song.
“Travelling Tales” includes:
Baobab – In an abridged version of the epic West African tale, a young boy must fulfill his mission to return water to the land amidst a relentless drought. Winner of the 2012 Dora Award for Outstanding TYA Production after a sold-out run at YPT.
Otjiera and the Fasting Ceremony – In this Mohawk tale, the chief’s son Otijera embarks on a dream quest to discover his destiny.
The Bewitched Canoe – In this traditional French-Canadian tale, viewers will soar through the sky on a flying canoe with a team of lumberjacks who have sold their souls just to attend a party in town!
