The Adventures of Great Rabbit

Based on an Algonquin tale about Mahtegwis, the rabbit trickster, this Eulenspiegel favorite tells how Bobcat got his stumpy tale. The puppet theatre uses witty, fast-paced dialogue and highly mobile shadow puppets in a cleverly designed, colorful stage that mimics the unending saga of cat chasing rabbit. The expressive silhouette theater is enhanced with jewel-like accent colors. This production, which has toured Germany, Austria, and the Czech Republic, features the live music of musician Ron Hillis.
