Theater, Arm-of-the-Sea Turtle Island Medicine Show Multicultural- Native American,
Nature- Environment,
Performing Arts- Puppetry
Turtle Island Medicine Show is a contemporary fable and cautionary tale inspired by both the Lenape Indian origin story and by current reports from climate studies. The show features whimsical kinetic sculptures, richly painted paper mache masks and puppet figures that range in size from 12 inches to the 16 foot tall Tree of Life. Composer & music director Dean Jones' inventive score loops together gongs, hoop drum, jaw harp and trombone scats in a medley of live sound. He also supplies voices for narrator and characters. Meanwhile four nimble, shape-shifting performers bring to life the mask and puppet multitudes. The Lenape origin story describes a great flood and how various animals try to dive to the bottom and bring up mud. When one of them, Muskrat, finally succeeds and Duck and Frog spread the mud on Turtle's back, this tiny island grows into a mighty continent. Arm-of-the-Sea carries the tale into the fossil-fueled modern moment where climate change threatens to de-stabilize this Turtle Island home. Appropriate for family audiences and grades 1-8. School performances include a study guide and post performance discussion with cast. Photos and video available at www.armofthesea.org
