West African Folklore Comes to Jazz Cafe

Detroit’s PuppetArt Theater is presenting a play with roots in Ghana’s storytelling lore. The performance, which takes place tomorrow [Sunday] afternoon at the Jazz Café at the Music Hall, tells the tale of Ananse —the master of all stories. WDET’s Annamarie Sysling spoke with Nicholas Pobutsky, a puppeteer and the Technical Director of PuppetArt Theater, about the puppet show and what the theater has been up to since moving out of their downtown location last year.
