A Light in the Night of President Khaya Africa 6, 10,11 and 29 November 2000

For the last seven months, teams of actors, local NGOs, government agencies and the private sector from the southern African region have been working with communities. They have been collecting information, workshoping plays and producing theatre on natural resource management and conservation issues. These activities have all been taking place as part of Africa Resources' (ART) regional Community Outreach Programme. The actor teams, from seven countries in the region will now come together to form a regional theatrical troupe, Report Back Africa, and work on a play to be directed and produced by Nicholas Ellenbogen. A Light in the Night of President Khaya Afrikha is a light-hearted entertaining exploration of the serious issues of resource conservation and use facing African leadership today. Eighteen international award-winning actors perform in this musical. The play explores natural resource issues with an explosion of song, dance and African story telling. The troupe will be performing in Kasane 6 November, Maun 10 and 11 November and Gaborone 29 November 2000.
