Performing & Visual Arts Summer Camp for Kids 2014 presentsKuhusiani - “Ordinary Hearts, Extraordinary Minds”
In Honor of two Great Activists and Humanitarians Dr. Maya Angelou and Nelson Mandela
Kuhusiani, is the story of Maleek, a now troubled youth who is on the verge of being placed into the criminal justice system after a series of family and school disappointments. Maleek has determined that his road to success is to be a gangster rapper. His parents, though divorced, are unified in their belief that this sort of behavior is not a viable way to make a living and eventually support himself. He feels no one understands him. “What is a man to do?” Join us for this musical production which delves into the hearts and minds of young people expressed through dance, music and spoken word based on their life experiences.
