Soro and the Lucky Grain of Corn LowRes

 

The 19th ASSITEJ World Congress and International Theatre Festival for Children and Young Audiences


As part of Cradle of Creativity: The 19th ASSITEJ World Congress and International Theatre Festival for Children and Young Audiences and the French Institute of South Africa (IFAS) is delighted to announce its collaboration with ASSITEJ South Africa in a range of activities.


During the Congress, there will be an important participation from Francophone countries. Delegates from Francophonie countries will come for the Regional Playwriting Workshop that will take place from the 23rd to the 27th May 2017 in Cape Town, which is organised by ASSITEJ France.

To heighten our partnership with ASSITEJ South Africa, IFAS is also bringing a beautiful puppetry show called "Soro et le Grain de Maïs Magique" (Soro and the Lucky Grain of Corn), performed by the company "La vie à pied" from France (Réunion Island).

"Soro et le Grain de Maïs Magique" (Soro and the Lucky Grain of Corn) is a story from a book written by Véronique Tadjo. It is a story about Soro, a little boy who receives a lucky grain of corn from his parents, but when he leaves it on a stone, a bird steals it away. Soro runs everywhere to catch up with the bird and in his journey to find the grain, he meets many friendly animals and people along the way, but he cannot stop for long because he must find his lucky grain of corn. When Soro finally catches up with the bird, he learns that magic is not always where we think it is. It is suitable for children from 1-6 years old.


"Soro et le Grain de Maïs Magique" (Soro and the Lucky Grain of Corn)
21st, 22nd and the 23rd May 2017 at the Baxter Theatre (Cape Town)
Illustrated & Performance by Déborah Martin and Yohann Lamy
