Description: One of the greatest legends of West African Mand? tradition is brought to life in a completely interactive experiential theater production. The tale of Sunjata is the saga of a boy who is prophesied to be the greatest king of his people, and his loving mother, who must help him to overcome the adversity of a very dangerous world of sorcery and hostility. Traditional music, costumes, and scenery set the stage for an unforgettable experience as students realize that they are not there merely to watch the production, but are being immersed and involved in helping to create the magical world of 12th century Mali.
