The Origin of Life on Earth: An African Creation Myth is based on the book of the same name that was written by Dr. David Anderson. It tells the story of how Earth and the
first people were created, according to the Yoruba Culture of West Africa. This creation story connects the African Diaspora to the arrival of West Africans in New Orleans and
their legacy in New Orleans culture and tradition. This original dance/theater production has a cast that includes master dancers, theater artists and musicians that bring the
story to life. For more information or to book your school’s field trip, call Drena S. Clay at (504) 569-9070.
