Humanness and What Took It

A multilingual performance combining theatre, poetry, song and Oromo dance. Exploring what it means to be human in the presence of each other – those who elevate your humanity and those who deny it.

Dedicated to lifting up the diverse philosophies and stories that the Oromo worldview has to offer.

Soreti Kadir dedicates this performance to the memory of Haacaaluu Hundeessaa, an Oromo Hero.
