Charly in the Desert at Shenkman Arts Centre is a puppet show about the story of culture, tolerance and friendship.
If heading outside into the cold temperatures isn’t what you are planning to do this weekend, consider instead taking the kids to a performance at Shenkman Arts Centre. This Saturday they have a puppet show called Charly in the Desert. This story about two children who are entering a new family situation and are required to explore their potential friendship and cultural differences sounds like a unique experience for families.
Charly in the Desert explores themes of tolerance, sharing, and bridging cultural differences. Drawing on African cultural themes and innovative uses of marionettes, the story was inspired by author Ève Alexandre-Beaulieu’s travels through Burkina Faso.
