50 minute indoor puppet and music show. All ages. Life size, hand, rod, shadow puppets. Don’t miss this exquisite new show.
Two sisters separated during the fall of Saigon find themselves a world apart. Vi An, a refuge, arrives in Canada and teaches herself to play the zither. Through her music, she conjures the life of her sister, raised in the jungles along the Mekong River in South East Asia. Rescued by an elephant, the sister embarks on a harrowing journey in search of a lost calf. Along the way, she saves as many elephants from the perils of modern dangers as she can.
The story is told without words using mask and puppetry, including shadow and hand/ rod puppets.
