Animal Amigos: Stories from the Tree of Life
Gather ’round the Tree of Life for a retelling of two delightful Mexican folktales! Hear the story of Medio Pollito, the little half-chicken born with one leg, one wing, one eye, and half a beak! Then laugh as Rabbit, a perennial trickster, outsmarts hungry Coyote again and again. This show was created with support from a grant from the Jim Henson Foundation.
Sponsored by Dan's Papers Michael Paraskevas has illustrated and written 24 children’s books over the years with his mother, Betty. The two created and wrote the animated television series Maggie and the Ferocious Beast for Nickelodeon that went on to win a Gemini Award for Best Animated Series. Two more of the team’s books were also made into animated series: Marvin the Tap-Dancing Horse for PBS and Kids from Room 402 for Fox Family. In addition, Mickey has worked for most major magazines including Sports Illustrated, Time, Town & Country, New York Magazine and Rolling Stone, to name but a few. Dan’s Papers has proudly used over 100 paintings of Michael’s covers over the past 30 years along with thousands of cartoons and comics.
Come experience and enjoy a soothing, deeply relaxing, immersive Sound Meditation with Daniel Lauter, using hand selected exquisite crystal bowls and gongs, Tibetan and Himalayan bells, rain sticks, and more. Wellness @SAC has been made possible thanks to the generosity of the Michael and Annie Falk Foundation.
