A story of stone and tree. Nature, wonderment and poetry are the common threads of these two table-top short performances without words. A fantasy world brought to life with only a few elements: pebbles and pieces of wood!
Trees are like people; they have a destiny. . . This is the story of branches that were thought dead. Gathered up by the river’s edge, they become trees once again. This poetic tale without words chronicles the seasons in the life of a tree, mirroring the seasons in the life of humans. Spirits live within the tree yet go unnoticed — They are the heart that beats the sap.
A poetic and mythical journey in the silence of the Far North. A silence inhabited by wind, silhouettes, rhythms, shapes and sounds as fantastic as they are familiar. A tale without words, with puppets and rocks. . . our ancestors!
Running Time: 45 minutes
Techniques: Object Theatre and Various Puppetry Techniques, Without Words
