Rejuvenary River Circus

  • Red Barn Docotorow Center for the Arts Hunter, NY (map)

PRESENTED BY ARM-OF-THE-SEA THEATER: This CIRCUS is an allegorical tale featuring gorgeous masks and puppet characters, a bio-morphic set design and live original music. The story follows Malakai, the River messenger and water carrier who travels between Mountain Peaks and the Deep Blue Sea. Along his journeys Malakai encounters a host of creatures, including a lyrical sea turtle, a fast-talking crow, a pair of industrious beavers, beds of filter-feeding oysters, and schools of migrating fish. Each animal offers insights into their particular role in a watershed’s ecosystem services. When the old man falls ill his granddaughter Rachel must rise to the challenge and help restore her grandfather, the River, back to health.

CIRCUS runs one hour in length and is ideally suited for family audiences. If weather permits, bring a blanket for an outdoor show on the lawn!
