NATIONAL THEATRE OF GHANAN

                                                  PRESS RELEASE

INTRODUCTION   

Due to the success of the Ayiyii production in 2021, the National Theatre is obliged to bring it back this year, 2022.

The performances are scheduled for 27th& 28th August 2022 at the main auditorium of the National Theatre.

Please find below the synopsis of Ayiyii:

Ayiyii and the pot of wisdom is based on the Ghanaian folktale which tells how Kweku Ananse decided to gather all wisdom for himself. In this version, Ayiyii is seen as a peculiar child with unique characteristics; growing up, he demonstrates extraordinary characteristics, such as a high level of understanding, always looking for alternate ways of doing things, learning everyday tricks, and has a very curious mind.

This leads him to embark on expedition through the length and breadth of the country…. The scenes and acts, take us through a journey of rich authentic theatre; a fusion of traditional and contemporary music, dance, mime, pantomime, and dialogues to depict the characteristics of the Ghanaian theatre.
