Elementary School Performance ( Somerdale, NJ)
Mykee and Tania (Gitali) use the mediums of performance art (i.e., acting, music, storytelling) to reach their audiences. They have created a powerful show, with an underlying theme of inclusion and acceptance of differences. They challenge audience members to practice small acts of kindness that will have the effect of saving the world. Their program is not limited to the overused references of bully prevention. They prefer focusing upon improving the behavior of zebras, and Dr. Fowlin has coined the expression, “Don’t be a zebra, unless you can be like the zebras.”
Children will walk away empowered and understood, realizing that changing the world is no more complex than seeing those who are alone, and helping them to feel less alone. It doesn’t take a title to live a life that is a testimony of character.
