The Ebony tree

A beautiful tribute to inconditionnal love

Adults and Children from 7  /  Duration 60 minutes

Matsang was a very special little girl… imagining conversations with animals and plants,conversing with Nature.

It might be true… one stormy night, she went back home seated on the top of a magnificent walking Ebony tree a genie of the big rain forest.

Based on the anthology by Kama Kamanda, this story is a beautiful tribute to inconditionnal love,

passion and trees. It invites us to think about alterity, hospitality, true love.

It inspired storyteller Sylvie Mombo and musician Axel Lecourt (Drums, Kalimba, Sanza , Talking drum, Mouth bow, Nasal flute…). These two artists have shared their mutual desires to create a mix, colours and perfumes of the great Rain Forest.


Hyena dance

Adults and children from 6 /Duration : 45 min,

Hyena was the last creature to see the secret heart of a baobab tree. It won’t let us in anymore because it don’t trust anybody. And who can blame it?Maybe, one day, we might be lucky enough to win back that trust and see the wonders in the heart of the baobab tree.
