KidsLIVE and TeenLIVE: Kids LIVE presents Turtle Island Medicine Show

Share

January 22, 2011

Program Locations:

Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, Celeste Bartos Forum
For all ages
Katerina and Andreas C. Dracopoulos Family Endowment for Young Audiences.
Giant Puppets, Masks & Live Music in a
Contemporary Fable and Cautionary Tale
This show is inspired by the Lenape Indian origin story and current reports from climate studies, and is created by Arm-of-the-Sea directors Marlena Marallo and Patrick Wadden. The show features whimsical kinetic sculptures, richly painted papier mâché masks, and puppet fi gures that range in size from 12 inches to the 16 foot tall Tree of Life. The inventive score loops together gongs, a hoop drum, a jaw harp, and trombone scats in a medley of live sound, while performers bring life to masks and puppets. For ages 4 and older.
 
This event will be held in the Celeste Bartos Forum.
