In no time they are up in an airplane, headed for the Kalahari Desert

Told with an inventive playfulness that engages a contemporary audience, they explore serious issues with disarming naïveté. These issues are global warming
and loss of the natural world. From one of the most dynamic and adventurous theater making teams in South Africa, Jenine Collocott and Nick Warren comes
collaboration with German actress and concert harpist Barbara Draeger.

potential to be developed and traveled further. It was selected to perform at the 2013 National Schools Festival to standing ovations from the learners. From there
