Storytelling is one of the most prominent components of the African oral tradition. Its significance in the cultural life style goes beyond the theater, since theater in Africa exceeds the stage. Storytelling, in the African context, is a unique blend of theatrical ensemble, characterized by music, dance, riddles, jokes, mythological fairy tales, fables, and narratives of historical facts of real life ancestral stories.
