Wish Work Puppet Series: How to Know a Whale

October 15 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

$5.00 – $10.00

October 15 at 1PM
At 2742 15th Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55407
By Felicia Cooper
This show is a whale of a time and a (very) loose homage to Moby-Dick if Ishmael was a hyper-curious eleven-year-old girl and the whale was a little friendlier! With the help of her stuck submarine, How to Know a Whale explores her perspective in isolated circumstances, a maker’s approach, and our relationship to the ocean. Join us underwater for shadow puppets, object performance, and original music as we search for a whale.
Suitable for kids 5-12, How to Know a Whale uses shadow puppets from an overhead projector, object performance in a suitcase, and original music from Juliana Carr. Calling on traditional performance techniques updated with new technology, this show sparks curiosity in kids and parents alike.
This show is supported in part by the Marks Family Endowment in Fine Arts, Connecticut Sea Grant, and the UConn Women’s League.

Wish Work, a program of Hinterhands Puppet Company, is puppet theatre for young audiences focused on telling stories working toward making the world the way we wish it to be. Performances will be held monthly on Saturday afternoons from 1PM-2PM. Each month will have a new show with a suggested donation of $5-$10 per person. No one will be turned away for lack of funds
We wish to do the work of hammering the stardust of our world into puppet performances and workshops for young audiences, inspiring them to shape the stardust they are given into their wishes for the future.
