Family Program – Mandela, Mammals, and Masks 

Sunday May 16, 2021 @ 1:00 pm 

Wildlife in South Africa is abundant, with almost 300 mammal species!  The term ‘Big Five’ is used to describe the power and strength of the elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion, and rhino.  In this family workshop you will have the opportunity to create animal masks or puppets of your own.  Participants can create an animal family.  Families will have the option to create short vignettes with their animals.  Each animal family will face a small conflict and then in the spirit of democracy and equality, show us how you come to a resolution together.  Then participants will have the opportunity to present to each other.   This workshop will be led by local South African artist and educator Dina Kaplan and Johannesburg visual artist Thabang  Lehobye .
