When & Where
Zara Aina is a group of theatre artists that offers children in Madagascar the tools to succeed as students and story tellers by delivering school supplies to their villages and by producing their original works of theatre. By partnering with Akany Fitahiana, Zara Aina brings street children of Antananarivo together with an international coalition of theatre professionals to create an original piece of physical theatre based in Malagasy folktales. This collaboration culminates in a tour of Madagascar, during which the children will deliver educational aid (notebooks, pens, and other sorely lacking supplies) and culturally relevant performances to communities in peril. By placing the children at the center of the creative process, Zara Aina seeks to amplify their means of expression, expand their potential for achievement, and improve their attitude towards learning.
