The African Tempest Project - 02.10.08

These photographs from "The African Tempest Project" were taken by IU theater professor Murray McGibbon. The project was a collaboration between Indiana University and the University KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa. McGibbon, a South African native, took six IU students to his home country for the production. He is applying for a grant to do the project again, this time having South African students come to Bloomington.
