Theatre Motus: Baobab 

The legendary tree of Saint-Exupéry’s The Little Prince is the star of this adaptation of a West African legend where a magical child summons the courage to save his community from a drought in the new theatrical experience for children, “Baobab.” The music and the dance itself tell a story, beginning with slow poetic flowing motions before crescendoing to athletic jumps and spectacular up-tempo movements engaging the whole body as well as the exquisitely crafted costumes. The Senegalese and Malian rhythms and songs blend with puppetry and shadow theater in the enchanting visuals and rattling percussions of a collaboration between Quebec’s Théâtre Motus and Mali’s SÔ Company. The Hudson Opera House presents “Baobob” at Taconic Hills Performing Arts Center in Craryville on Friday, October 21, at 8pm. (518) 822-1438;
