Event description

Description

A free, inspiring, and educational puppetry performance and workshop lead by Jim Henson’s daughter Heather Henson and her company IBEX Puppetry, Harmonious Migrations playfully explores the co-existence of people and the endangered whooping crane in North America.

Developed to teach children ages 5-12 about the interconnectivity of the environment and all species, this program focuses specifically on cranes through puppetry, storytelling, and crafts.

Participants are introduced to the Native American concepts of the Four Directions, four elements, four medicinal herbs, and four stages of life.

Students will leave this workshop with a new understanding of interconnectivity and respect for indigenous cultures. Harmonious Migrations is science with a conscience and a whole lot of fun!

This program is being offered in collaboration with Greenwich Reads Together produced by Greenwich Library. Participants will enjoy an hour performance followed by an interactive workshop with an opportunity to complete a hands-on activity relevant to the show.

IBEX Puppetry is an entertainment company dedicated to promoting the fine art of puppetry. Founded in 2000 and receiving multiple UNIMA awards, IBEX Puppetry supports puppet art in film, stage, gallery exhibits, workshops, and artist presentations.
