David Anderson of Clay and Paper Theatre
David will speak about his recent work in Nairobi, Kenya, and compare the challenges and opportunities of working abroad in a different culture with those that come from working with Toronto's diverse population:
"I would like to talk about some of the questions that were raised and surprising lessons learned during my recent trip to Nairobi. Although I was brought to Kenya to teach an International Baccalaureate drama class at the International School of Kenya, I had the good fortune to find some fascinating Kenyan puppeteers and drummers who see their art as a way of helping slum dwellers get out of the slums. They envision the teaching of puppeteering and drumming as a vocation that can propel their friends out of urban poverty and into a better life."
