Goat on a Boat @ Bay Street Theater presents: Steven’s Puppets – Rumplestiltzkin
Ages 3-10 | 45 minutes | FREE
Rumplestiltzkin is a fast paced, action filled, rhyming rendition of the classic tale, following the Miller as he weaves a web of lies to convince the King that his daughter can spin straw into gold!
Enter the outrageously outspoken and never happy villain, Rumplestiltzkin, whose preposterous demands create even more mayhem in the land of Stiltskin. Top it off with a famous, ground-breaking marionette that “flies to pieces” right before your eyes. Couple that with the Stevens Puppets touch of humor and authenticity and you get one of the most highly rated, happily pleasing programs ever!
Expanding the field of visual tropes, methods and materials, the 23 female artists on view will offer an artistic spectrum that ranges from the sublime to the utilitarian, from expressionism to precision, and from humor to drama. Curated by Janet Goleas.
With Artist-in-Residence Andrea Cote, the public will participate in collaborative printmaking and video. Participants will come together over the course of two months in a series of movement and art-making workshops culminating in a performance and large-scale tapestry.
