The African Witch (Hungary)
One-act play. DIVE INTO THE THEATRE 2020
- Viktória Szántó
- Danny Bain
Kabóca Puppet Theatre invites you to the mysterious hut where an African wizard-musician lives. He plays, sings, dances, and tells stories about two brave orphans Kaili and Szandzsi, jumping mouse, graceful antelope, and merciless African witch Kodzsugukil. Exotic rhythms, songs, and puppets create a specific African atmosphere filled with great music and magic spells. Miraculous ancient instruments not only make bewitching sounds but also tell mysterious legends of far Africa.
Actor and musician Danny Bain was born and raised in the USA and studied music in Africa. Since 2010, he has been living in Hungary. In his plays and performances for children, he creates a unique storytelling style based on African music traditions, combines original folk stories with intriguing melodies as well as hypnotising rhythms by playing ancient African instruments. Danny gives children a unique way to analyse language, music, dances and learn about foreign cultures as well as to find out some new interesting instruments.
