Tales for the Earth @ Munroe Center for the Arts
April 19 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
April Vacation Arts Program 2019
Munroe Art Center’s April Vacation week exploration of Sustainability will culminate with Diane’s performance of Tales for the Earth! Helping the environment will be seen through the fun and engaging lens of story. For the preceding week campers will explore the wonders of sustainable art. They will work on projects including creating a recycled garden, building sculptures out of repurposed materials, and learn the story of the earth through a special guest storyteller. The focus of this week will be teaching the relationship between art and the natural world around us. This performance is open to campers only.
Tales for the Earth is a celebration of Nature and all the simple things we can do to help. This beloved performance is both educational and entertaining, exploring topics such as water conservation, recycling and the wonder of the creatures all around us through involving and participatory narratives. Stories include: What Now, Cloacina?, Diane’s hilarious water conservation story about a water sprite who travels through the sewage system in search of her pond. The Tailor! a participatory folktale that has us all telling the story by the end and a contemporary story about a child’s encounter with fireflies. What shines through the entire presentation is a love and respect for our place in nature; with many ideas communicated about how we can create a difference.
