Treehouse Shakers' "Animal Rhythms" tell two African Folktales through modern dance, rhythmic sounds and storytelling. The folktales have been rewritten for this lively family dance-play. Through the use of body drumming, modern dance and storytelling, "Animal Rhythms" follows several animals as they learn about sharing, working and friendship. The storytellers wear headdresses that correspond to the dancers’ costumes.
