Even the Grasshopper Dreams:
Triumph Despite Adversity


This program consists of a series of vignettes. These poignant vignettes come from the Afro-Choctaw tradition of the South. They are presented in the character of a 67-year-old woman named ‘Rosie’. Storyteller Sadarri makes the audience laugh and cry as she dramatizes the flashbacks of her mother living in post-depression Mississippi.

Presented are a vast array of folktales, folk remedies and superstition, artistically blended into a cultural ‘soup’ that warms the heart and comforts the soul. ‘Rosie’ exemplifies success and inner peace by showing that it is indeed possible to triumph despite diversity.

Program time: 45 to 90 minutes
