Market Hall is excited to announce their 2012-2013 Youth Series!Our Youth Series this year will explore a variety of arts forms - Shakespearean theatre, a French mask troup, and a cultural dance / music / rhythm production for Black History Month.
In November Mysterious Entity is remounting its successful adaptation of Othello, whose timeless themes should resonate with grades 9 to 12 students. Intermediate grades will be able to celebrate Black History Month by attending Ballet Creole's World Premiere production of Tounkande - a rich kaleidoscope of contemporary songs, dances and rhythms of Guinea, West Africa. Shares the importance of connecting social and historical understanding of a West African tradition as it links with the present. And in April elementary and intermediate French classes can enjoy Faustwork Mask Theatre’s Le Masque est le Message, an outrageously delightful use of spoken word, body language and masks.
