A Florida Premiere
By Lynn Nottage

Mlima is a magnificent elephant trapped by the underground international ivory market. As he follows a trail littered by a history of greed, Mlima takes us on a journey through memory, fear, tradition and the penumbra between want and need. Two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage (MJ the Musical) of Sweat and Ruined, Mlima’s Tale is a captivating and haunting fable come to life.
This multimedia production features movement direction by Miami City Ballet choreographer Herman Payne and film curation by Delavega. Enjoy talkbacks with Zoo Miami’s Ron Magill after Sunday, October 23 and Saturday, October 29 performances.
Note: This production includes mature content.

The Wall Street Journal
