MY CHILD YAABA
As part of the Spirit of Africa Festival, Akshara Theatre in association with The P(ART)icle Collective presents a play for children, MY CHILD YAABA, performed by the Akshara Theatre’s Diksha Children’s Repertory.
Yaaba is a headstrong and wilful girl, a free spirit who loves to play with her friends. She lives in a traditional joint family in a small village in Ghana. She does not bother to help with the household chores like her sisters, thus earning the wrath of her Maami. But on Christmas Eve, Yaaba makes a decision that will change her life. Written by the eminent award-winning Ghanaian writer Ama Ata Aidoo, MY CHILD YAABA, presents a delightful picture of village life in Ghana and we realize the world really is one family!
Adapted and directed by Anasuya Vaidya. Performed by Aadya Sinha, Kiana Shroff, Elina Sabharwal, Shaurya & Shlok Makhijani and the Diksha Children’s Repertory .
