African Footprint International (Ghana) alongside Nafsi Acrobats (Kenya) recently received cheers from hundreds of kids during a brilliant performance at KIDDAFEST 2013 Festival.
Performing at the National Theatre in Accra, the artistes, who are in Ghana with the support of the Ghana Denmark Cultural Fund, exhibited well-coordinated movements as well as amazing acts of equilibrium, dexterity and motor harmonization.
Accompanied by an assortment of traditional Ghanaian drumming, dancing and contemporary music, the group swayed the kids with a variety of deft maneuvers that left them completely astonished.
Aerial dancers led by Esther Wrobel effectively utilized the vast expanse of space on the stage they “floated” on an apparatus attached to the ceiling thereby exploring space through three-dimensional tactics.
Led by Kennedy Nielsen Owino, the Kenyan acrobats exhibited extreme agility / dexterity as they flip-flopped, dived, jumped and rolled while Peter Kojo Amissah astounded the kids with tissue dancing.
The National Dance Company, Theatre Players and the Symphony Orchestra equally took turns to entertain the kids, who also showcased their skills with several performances, dance competitions, poetry recitals, drama and carnivals.
Based in Ghana and Denmark, African Footprint International comprises artistes from Ghana, Kenya, Denmark, Burkina Faso and Australia. They have performed to enthusiastic audiences in several parts of Europe and the United States.
Blue Band, Cowbell, Fan Milk, Kalyppo, Goethe-Institut, E’toys and More, Crown Paint, Logistic Movers Dannex and the Institute for Music and Development partnered KIDDAFEST 2013, which attracted thousands of kids throughout Ghana.
