Zulu is a performing artist, Master Storyteller, Monologist and
Multi-Cultural Specialist and so much more!
Nothando Zulu (No tanâ-doh Zoo lu) has been
performing for children and adults in Minnesota for more than twenty
years and nationally for more than 15 years. Based in the culturally
fertile Twin Cities of Minnesota, Ms. Zulu has drawn upon her own
rich heritage as a farm girl from Virginia, to add the many nuances
and ironies of life to her craft.
All audiences are naturally drawn to and find relevance
in the images she projects as she recreates the colorful characters
found in African and African- American folktales. In addition, Ms.
Zulu's, portrayals of significant African and African-American women
is a means of learning, which actually utilizes the emotions of
the learner. This often-neglected method has been proven to increase
retention far beyond conventional methods.
In a power demonstration of orality, the audience
creases to be mere spectators, they are empowered participants in
a living presentation. The experience is truly memorable! Zulu weaves
history, folklore and personal experience into stories that reflect
the traditions of Africans and stories that reflect the traditions
of Africans and southern African-Americans. As a storyteller she
has a chance to connect with children who aren't often impressed
with what adults have to say. Nothando Zulu pulls from an extensive
resource of colorful, funny characters whose antics and follies
leave audiences pondering their own life's lessons.
