El Viento: NACL Theater Company Streets
This event is FREE and open the public!
Small Miracles by the NACL company Streets visits Hurleyville Arts Centre July 14th with an outdoor theatre presentation directed by Tannis Kowalchuk. The original theatre creation is an all-ages outdoor show featuring stilt walkers, actors, musicians, and special puppet design by Hurleyville Makers Lab artist in residence Philip Cooper.
The outdoor location at the the old rail station, and freight house of the New York Ontario & Western railroad line in Hurleyville NY will be the site for a colorful performance about humanity’s shifts and movement, migration, adaptation and overcoming obstacles and walls. Each traveller, dressed in a different color scheme represents a unique place of origin and tradition, and together the ensemble presents a spectacular visual and aural montage of human stories of a group of people who are on the move.
Following the performance, audience members are invited to enjoy interactive workshops in puppetry and stilt walking taught by the performers and the puppeteer.
