Unfolding Seeds: Invocations of Transformation

This summer, join us as we re-engage in the way we know how- with communal storytelling, shadows, masks, and of course….giant puppets! 

Our 21st giant puppet show, “Unfolding Seeds: Invocations of Transformation” is rooted in gratitude, wonder, and thanksgiving. We are summoning our collective spirit to invoke care for the Earth, for its creatures, and for its future.

Come with us to the cool steps of the Forest Theatre once again, as we dive into a new story- one that honors the things that are lost, that adorns the Earth, and that offers forth avenues for regenerative repair. 

All flourishing is mutual, all liberation is collective, and all living things are welcome.
