It’s time for a theater treat that is sure to delight all ages with unique puppets made from scratch and stories that come from many Indigenous cultures. Coyote Stories will offer you many stories with many lessons. The puppets come alive on Saturday, January 28th at 10:00am at the Brainerd Public library.
In Coyote Stories, Nimisee the clown will tell some favorite trickster tales. Drawing from the stories of the Assiniboine of the Great Plains, the Aztecs of Mexico and the Okanagun and Salishan of the Great Basin; Coyote is a hero, a creator and a self-centered showoff with a kind heart. At a time when so many things cause us to weep, Coyote brings us laughter, nurtures our spirit and reminds us to celebrate life.
Since 1973, In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre has been using water, flour, newspaper, paint, and unlimited imagination to tell stories that explore the struggles and celebrations of human existence. Drawing inspiration from the world's traditions of puppet and mask theatre and its lively roots in transformative ritual and street theatre, HOBT creates vital, poetic theater for all ages and backgrounds. You won’t want to miss this show.
