Returning to Minnesota for a fourth time, Aar Maanta performed at four concerts in Minneapolis, Mankato, St. Cloud and Bloomington Indiana and participated in in-depth educational programs and residency events along the way.
In April 2018, theater artist Ifrah Mansour toured her show “How to Have Fun in a Civil War” to St. Cloud and Mankato as part of a Midnimo mini-residency. In the show, Mansour revisits her childhood memories from the 1991 Somali civil war to confront violent history with humor and provide a voice for the stories of children.
