Z Puppets Rosenschnoz welcomes you to take a place at the table and call into action someone who inspires you to make the next step towards liberation from life’s narrow passages. This uniquely intimate and joyous puppet theater experience will delve into the rich emotional landscape of struggle, loss, and triumph which we inherit and inhabit.
First, a story by award-winning Z Puppets’ artists Shari Aronson and Chris Griffith accompanied by Twin Cities’ stellar world music performer, Greg Herriges. Shari and Chris will use puppetry to bring into being two characters from their own ancestry: a 3500 yr.-old Jewish woman who was with Moses at the crossing of the Red Sea and a 6-yr old Cherokee time traveler bearing witness to the Trail of Tears.
Then, Z Puppets’ artists will lead you through simple steps to make power figures — small puppets embodying sources of strength.
Bring your power figure with you wherever you roam to help you find your road to freedom. Z Puppets encourages you to share back (via selfies, texts, and voicemails) where you and your puppet end up.
