SAC and Earthworm Pie Puppet Theater present "Live Story Hive", Thursday June 11 @ 6pm

Earthworm Pie Puppet Theater
presents "Live Story Hive"
Chuckie Harris Park
3-17 Cross Street, East Somerville

Earthworm Pie will present 3 folk tales with environmental themes from around the world. These may include: An Abenaki Story from Maine “Gluscap and the Game Bag,” which shares a sympathetic but cautionary tale about using up too many of the Earth’s resources so that future generations will have none, “Gekko, gekko, gekko,” is an ecological Indonesian story about how everything is connected, and “Platypus, Pick a side!” is an Australian story about how all living things need each other and none is better than another. (Other stories with similar themes may
be exchanged instead of one of these depending on the size and type of audience.) This kind of puppetry asks audience members to done simple masks, hats and props to become the puppets and perform the action and music of the story while the narrator narrates.

About the Series
As the summer event season approaches, the Somerville Arts Council is launching yet another city wide event series that will take place throughout Somerville. Events such as PorchFEST, Dancing in the Streets, and Puppet Palooza allows the community to participate, interact, and engage in non-traditional ways while cultivating the
idea of Somerville as a cultural arts incubator without walls.

Puppet Palooza is a collaboration between the Somerville Arts Council and East Somerville Main Streets as part of the This is East programming--an event series designed to bring the art of puppetry to east Somerville in unexpected places. Join us in East Somerville for a three-part puppetry extravaganza. This May & June, we’ll hit the streets, courtyards and parks, showcasing local, national, and international performing companies. Great for kids and adults and 100% free.
