The time we have to reflect. The time we have to grow. The time we have to love one another. The time we have to make our voice heard. The time we have to make a difference.
1,2,3 Puppetry travels through the four seasons, the ticking clock, the cycle of life, the journey of a caravan, the spinning of the wheel, and the garden of inspiration, to explore what is time, and how we can make the most of it with the amount we have. Together we can see the seconds, mind the minutes, and honor the hours. Join us on our journey that features giant puppets, masks, live music, and dance that will be fun and thought-provoking for the whole family.
