When the moon rises high and the stars twinkle, it’s bedtime for the baby animals of the Indian forest. But tonight, when the skies turn dark and the night grows stormy, the little ones can’t sleep. SWISH-SWISH! CRACK-TRACK! FLASH-SNAP! goes the storm. Only Mama Elephant with her words of wisdom can reassure them. Join Indian-born storyteller Chitra Soudar, hear her folktales and make beautiful masks using crafts and your imagination to explore the art of storytelling.
