Three Tales, One World

In 2017 and 2018 Julie Boada, Gustavo Boada and Anne Sawyer presented three short folk tales from Mexico, Myanmar and Somalia featuring shadow, rod and felted puppets.

“Cucú” (Mexico) is about a lazy and vain bird who doesn’t help the other animals with gathering for the harvest. She redeems herself when I fire breaks out on the farm.

“Hyenas Never Share the Meat” (Somalia) is a classic tale about cooperation and mistrust.

“Heros Into Monsters” (Karen story) is about trusting ones’ community to solve problems. Folk music curated by local composer Jim Parker.
