Metamorphosis on Bamboo Dancing
We will facilitate, share inspiration and experience about Egrang (stilts) game and dance. We believe that Egrang is not just a traditional game but also a tool for change for Ledokombo children and the community. Egrang is a symbol or medium – a social-changing tool. It is something traditional that has fallen into disuse, but now it is used to encourage children to move and change.
