SWEET SONGS AND FLYING OBJECTS
See quirky puppetry and toy theater, live bands, and then hang out in our garden for an after party with signature cocktails. Each weekend will feature a different line-up of puppetry artists and bands, so you'll want to come back for more.
July 6 - 7 Line-up
By Paradox Teatro - Sofia Padilla (Mexico City), Davey T Steinman (Pittsburgh), and Kalen Keir (Minneapolis)
In light of expanding border walls around the globe, MIGRACIONES follows the voyage of refugees as they travel on legs, wings, and dreams in search of a new home. Paradox Teatro is a collaboration between artists from México and the United States, communicating across cultures through puppetry, shadows, and music in English and Spanish.
SHORT STORIES IN MINIATURE
By Liz Howls
Liz Howls performs 3 short fables for all ages (that’s you too mom and dad!). Using miniature handmade puppets and her odd yet silly sense of humor, she makes the whole family laugh. This show is fun and sentimental and reminds us of ancient lessons that we can still apply today. Guess along, clap along, sing along, and laugh along with SHORT STORIES IN MINIATURE.
July 6: Bella Yaga
A multi-sensual performance project. Storytelling through the dimensions of folk music, moving image, spoken word and installation art. Bella Yaga is directed by Anna Johnson in collaboration with musicians Alia Jeraj, Alana Horton, Joni Griffith and Peter Morrow.
July 7: Coy & Daring
Coy & Daring is the duo project of Joey Ford and Jenna Wyse. The couple began playing music together over a decade ago, but mainly focused their writing to fit the sounds of their various projects: Tree Party, The 7-Shot Symphony, The Poor Nobodys. Named by the waning and waxing of the moon, the duo behind Coy & Daring have begun making public the music they've kept to themselves.
