Dance Performance: Elephant Stories, Oct. 23 2012 @ Alliance
Elephants are in danger and their story needs to be told. Pamoja Dance Group – an inclusive integrated dance company of dancers with and without physical disability – will be telling this tale through dance and movement in a beautiful, disturbing contemporary dance performance.
The main characters of the dance piece, Elephant Stories, are in fact not elephants at all, but rather village story tellers.
The dancers tell the story of the present day situation of elephants in Kenya and many other places in Africa. Like the traditional story teller, who plays many roles in order to tell his tale, the Pamoja Dancers, while dancing the part of the story teller, at times physically transform themselves into elephants, at other times poachers or park rangers.
