FREE and open to the public, but ticket required!

Hand to Hand is propelled by 2 giant puppet hands, each the size of a house and rigged like a sailing ship, and music that blows the roof off. The Squonkers, dwarfed by the hands, climb a multi-tiered stage. Music rises from a single finger flicking an organ key, as natural an expression of humanity as a wave or a fist. Squonk’s original progressive rock drives a journey that is spectacular, plaintive, and comic. In this melee, the giant thumbs detach to become truly opposable and challenge each other with guitars.

This is a special performance for working artists and student artists, followed by a workshop on the Squonk Collaborative Arts Process.  Squonk Artistic Directors will discuss music collaboration, devised theater, and cross-disciplinary thinking, and share their process for making storyboards for creating performance.

This engagement of Squonk Opera is funded through the Mid Atlantic Tours program of Mid Atlantic Arts with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.

 

 

Squonk Opera was supported by a grant from the Ramapo College Foundation.
