Heather Henson — daughter of puppet legend Jim Henson — and IBEX Puppetry present Ajijaak On Turtle Island, a unique immersive puppet spectacle.
Kites morph into soaring birds and branches transform into a gentle deer. Visionary puppetry artist Heather Henson and Grammy Award winner Ty Defoe bring together an ensemble of North American First Nations people to tell the tale of Ajijaak, a young whooping crane who must face her first migration.
Presented by FirstWorks, Ajijaak on Turtle Island features puppetry created at Jim Henson’s Creature Shop™ to celebrate the natural world. The play was written by Ty Defoe, with music by Defoe, Grammy nominee Dawn Avery, and Kevin Tarrant of The SilverCloud Singers.
Recommended for ages 7 and up. Children under 12 — $22.50.
Advance tickets $40, 7pm, Thursday, January 31/Friday, February 1, Woodman Center, Moses Brown, 250 Lloyd Avenue, (directions)
