For the Puku Story Festival, the Pitterpat team was paired with Ayabulela Ngcalwane of Izwe Lebali, a local arts organisation that reaffirms the power of indigenous storytelling to create contemporary forms to educate and entertain. The partnership worked well as evidenced by the reaction not only of the children but the teachers, who requested follow up workshops, specifically for Foundation Phase teachers.
Creatrix presented twelve roadshows over three days to Foundation Phase learners. Click here to view a few performance highlights, using musical storytelling techniques that delight and entertain young children.
