More About The Play

To tell the tale we use an original sound design that includes musical compositions and sampled crane sounds. To create the show, our artists worked with biologists and cranes to accurately create and portray the world of the Whoopers and their human stewards. We also utilize a variety of puppetry styles including life size, hand, rod, shadow, stilt, bun raku, marionette puppets, and masked characters to tell our story.
Story telling without words, the production surpasses borders of countries, race, religion, age, sex & language making it inclusive to a vast range of audiences. As well, universal themes remind us of our shared humanity beyond cultural divisions.
