The Story of The Weakest and The Strongest

We all know what it feels like to contend with cliques and bullies and being left out. These are issues we all face as children and adults. For children this can be particularly painful, especially today, when our youth are struggling to maintain feelings of belonging and security. "The Story of the Weakest and Strongest," a moving and thought provoking participatory performance, illustrates how an "untogether tribe" (dominated by a bully) becomes a "together tribe."  Children  learn to value of each individual's contribution to the "tribe", and why caring, cooperation and respect are important for every community.

Children become a part of this unfolding story as they learn character development, improvisation, theatrical movement, vocal expression and other dramatic activities.  As your children act out this poignant tale, they celebrate their new-found togetherness and sense of security by creating spontaneous music on handmade instruments and rhythmically move together in the "Sash Dance."
