Summary

'Let Her Be' is the story of the struggle of a girl who chooses determinedly to pursue her dreams despite her father's obvious disapproval of her constant attempt to learn things that 'only a boy should do'. With the accompaniment of beautiful choreographic movements and sweet medley of African drums, this theatrical piece highlights the necessity to identify the woman as free from old social limitations and customs. It extols the self-fulfilment and self-development for women.

Challenge

Percussion instrument is usually a male-lead oriented ensemble in most part of the world. What we want to do is to bring a group of female-lead ensemble together to act as a source of inspiration to children and young people. Our play will tour rural areas and city schools around the country using the predominantly African women artists to change the mindset and focus of young people to believe in themselves and to know that skills are universal thing that everyone can acquire.

Solution

It will promote gender equity, by portraying the woman as a unique individual and as an important member of the family unit who can affect the world and create change. It will emphasise the necessity of family unity towards the making and fulfilment of lifelong dreams. It will also showcase rich cultural display of the Talking Drum and other percussion instruments, especially as handled by a female concentrated ensemble.

Long-Term Impact

Will share and project full and in-depth knowledge about culture and heritage. It will enhance awareness of the importance of cultural heritage of humankind, and redouble efforts to protect and conserve them. It is in the light of this that we have decided to preserve part of the musical traditions and culture of the Yoruba people by presenting it in a way that it would give the present generation chance to learn the best beneficial parts that will enhance and improve life behaviours.
