“Once upon a time in the not so distant past, somewhere in a village in a land far away there lived a young girl named Yassama.”

Yassama and the Beaded Calabash is the story of a young girl who, with the help of the old Baobab tree, saves her village from drought and delivers a powerful lesson about the importance of respecting and honouring Mother Earth.

Acclaimed artist Lua Shayenne weaves vibrant dance and music with engaging storytelling in an interactive performance created especially for young children.

Yassama and the Beaded Calabash was commissioned and developed with the support of the WeeFestival of Arts & Culture and Théâtre Français de Toronto.

Producer, text, performer: Lua Shayenne
Music: Cécé Haba
Director: Karine Ricard
Dramaturgy and educational consultant: Lynda Hill

Presented jointly by WeeFestival of Arts and Culture, Aquarius Theatre and FrancoFEST
