ACTion Fest 2016 -- SHANGAA: SHOCK & AWE

  • IATI Theater 64 East 4th Street New York, NY, 10003 United States (map)

Shock.  Bewilderment.  Rapture.  Awe.  

The Kiswahili word "SHANGAA" can mean any of these things.  Or all of them at once.

Join us for an eclectic festival of devised theatre inspired by a month spent working and creating beside the diverse peoples of Tanzania.  From the twisting streets of Zanzibar to the sweeping plains of the Serengeti, four casts of DAT artists seek to find and share the shangaa of today's East Africa.
