Midtown Global Market
Midtown Global Market will host six, FREE In the Heart of the Beast performances in the Midtown Central Court on Thursday nights during the weekly Neighborhood Night celebrations this fall.
Come for the show and stay for the “Make-n-Take” workshop based on that day’s puppet show theme. You’ll leave with your own puppet creation to take home.
On the Day You Were Born
by Esther Ouray & Julie Boada
Based on the award winning children’s book by Debra Frasier, the story explores the scientific phenomena that unfolded on the day “you” entered the world. This toy theater production combines puppetry, poetry and music that celebrate the natural miracle of the earth. The author’s radiant collage illustrations translate to a miniature stage as puppeteers open trick boxes releasing the wonders described in the book. Performed in English.
In the Heart of the Beast uses water, flour, newspaper, paint, and unlimited imagination to tell stories that explore the struggles and celebrations of human existence. Drawing inspiration from the world’s traditions of puppet and mask theatre and its lively roots in transformative ritual and street theatre, HOBT creates vital, poetic theater for all ages and backgrounds. hobt.org
