The Mouse, the Ant and the Antelopes


Performance by Emerita Emerencia

Chabelita (a cute hand-puppet) is still shivering from a scary encounter with a mouse. Her auntie (emerita) tells her own version of The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse to calm her. She continues with the story ofThe Ant and the Butterfly, followed by a tale of african antelopes. This performance with audience participation brings forward the message about being humble, and the importance of sharing and respect for what was here before us.
