Asheville Creative Arts presents
May 13 and 14 at 11:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.
A 30-minute interactive multilingual and multimedia performance installation for ages 0-5 and their caretakers. SHELL includes projections, movement, puppetry and play.
SHELL follows a Slug and a Snail who journey to find a new shell when the Snail’s shell is broken in a storm. Composed of different vignettes, audiences will practice phonetics, play with causality and object permanence against the backdrop of a story that will be performed in Spanish and English, and touch on migration and community.
10-minutes of free play at the end that will allow young people to interact with the puppets and set pieces, and practice games, movements, and noises they saw during the performance.
