In the 1400s Oba Ewurawe led an Empire that was the most powerful in Africa. He created a shining city, a system of government & the most beautiful bronze plagues the world had ever seen. Travel through history to 2012 when the beautiful ‘Benin Bronzes’ sit in British museum, gathering dust. Come with us to the burning heart of West Africa for a vibrant journey of discovery & controversy. The Wisdom Pot is a play about how we tell stories and interpret history to understand who we are through a fully interactive theatre performance and workshop. The pupils are engaged as active participants, and challenged to solve historical and ethical dilemmas using drama and debate.
