Heather Henson’s Ajijaak on Turtle Island
January 31 & February 1, 7 PM at Moses Brown Woodman Center
“An immersive environmental spectacle for the whole family”
Visionary puppetry artist Heather Henson and Grammy Award winner Ty Defoe bring together an ensemble of North American First Nations people to tell the tale of Ajijaak, a young whooping crane who must face her first migration south.
Indigenous songs, language, and dances weave together in a colorful spectacle about the dangerous effects of climate change on animals and our Mother Earth.
Featuring puppets from Jim Henson’s Creature Shop and music by Ty Defoe, Grammy nominee Dawn Avery and Kevin Tarrant of The SilverCloud Singers, Ajijaak on Turtle Island takes flight in a celebration of the natural world sure to inspire the next generation of eco-champions.
