String: A Show of Dance & Object Theater

Seattle Area This gentle presentation of dance and object theater, performed by movement artist Mary Margaret Moore, takes very young children on a simple and yet magical journey of discovery. "String" aims to stimulate children's imagination and stretch their capacity to "read" their experiences and decipher their feelings. In "String" movement and an array of simple objects inspire a journey into discovery. The fresh and minimal canvas set is a metaphor of a blank page, and upon it, a brilliant red rope leads to a huge canvas bundle. When the show begins, Key, the character, is waiting, playing cat's cradle. She discovers the red winding rope. Following the rope, Key finds the large bundle and unpacks seven brown paper bags. Each bag holds new emotions; the seventh, the bag of dreams and the future, will be opened...tomorrow. A 35-minute show followed by a Q&A with the performer. "String" was conceived with children ages 2 to 8 in mind, but is a delight for all ages. Seating is limited, so advance ticket purchase… Performance Type: Theater. Age recommendation: Infant.
