Spirit of Uganda
Grinning drummers pound their instruments, their beats stacking and tumbling as costumed dancers follow suit and vocals bound through a call-and-response volley. Though the visceral choreography makes it hard to believe, this family-friendly spectacle is put on by children—ranging in age from 8 to 18—who act as ambassadors for Uganda's 2.4 million orphans. Produced by the Dallas-based nonprofit Empower African Children, Spirit of Uganda helps these children not only support themselves, but also others displaced from their home country.
Past rows of seats covered in crimson, past a red carpet that brings out the auditorium's regality, past a centerpiece chandelier that dangles from the ceiling with the quiet grace of a toddler climbing out of her crib, is a stage. Upon this stage, the Zeiterion Theatre explores the performing arts, hosting national and international performers who enlighten the community to other cultures and inspire the younger population to actively participate in the arts. Every year, Zeiterion, lovingly known as "The Z," also provides 5,000 free tickets to children and families with low incomes, working to make arts more accessible to all.
