November 14 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
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 fall Neighborhood Night celebrations.
Each performance will be followed by a free Make N Take Workshop based on that day’s puppet show theme and led by the artists from In The Heart of the Beast. You’ll leave with your own puppet creation to take home.
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, In the Heart of the Beast creates vital, poetic theater for all ages and backgrounds.
Each evening’s event begins at 5:30 p.m. and Make N Take Workshops begin at 6:30 p.m.
“Coyote Stories” – 30 minutes
In Coyote Stories, Nimisee the clown will tell some favorite trickster tales of that lovable scamp, Coyote. Drawing from the stories of the Assiniboine of the Great Plans, the Aztecs of Mexico, and the Okanagun and Salishan of the Great Basin, Coyote is a hero, a creator, and a self-centered show off with a kind heart. At a time when so many things cause us to weep, Coyote brings us together, nurtures our spirit and reminds us to laugh.
