Internationally renowned Green Fools Theatre presents Project: Whooping Crane, an ecological puppet show of friendship, dedication, struggle, and survival.
Project: Whooping Crane wordlessly weaves its tale intertwining art and science told through music, mask, and life-size puppetry.
Through scientific fact and an imagined dream world, our story follows the lives of two cranes: one taken from the wild and placed in a captive breeding program and the other born in captivity and released into the wild and the tireless human stewards who dedicate their lives to their survival.
A beautiful story of conservation and love, the play illustrates our culpability in the strain to our planet, but also celebrates our ability and responsibility to save the world.
