Trusty Sidekick: A Perfect Party for Trees
Suggested Ages: All
Join Trusty Sidekick for an interactive outdoor performance that invites audiences to travel through nature to help build the perfect birthday party for the trees. Try multi-sensory activities, participatory puppetry, and collective live music in a celebration of nature, and the many ways that we see ourselves as a part of it. Guided by The Beekeeper, The Bear, and Ms. Branch, create a gentle and playful space for audiences to dig like a badger, sing like a bird, and sit quietly like a tree to become a part of the forest itself.
Saturday, 11am, 1pm & 3pm
