Foiled Fables: with Synetic Theater | World Percussion: with Tom Teasley
Ages 5 – 7
When an evil witch’s spell causes all the fairy tale stories to mismatch – nothing is as you remember. Cinderella and the Three Bears, Little Red Riding hood sat on a wall and had a big fall, and Rapunzel wears glass slippers? Half ad-lib and half text, the survival of these characters rests solely on the student’s imaginations. Will the fairly tale world ever be the same, or will the Three Little Pigs finally get their Mermaid fins?
Students that participate in this performance will work as a team through active play and physical coordination to create their own twisted fairly tales. No two stories will ever be the same and every session will feature different fairly tale characters to play with.
Students will also get the exciting opportunity to work with Tom Teasley, an award-winning multidimensional sound artist. Students will explore how rhythms from around the world often have a commonality. This realization allows one to use the rhythmic traditions from one culture to gain awareness of another culture.
