Renowned puppet and mask maker Ralph Lee returns with his Mettawee River Theatre Company for Nanabozho, a comic account of how our world began, drawn from the Native American Winnebago tribe's story of creation. The text has been adapted by playwright Clarke Jordan, a founding member of Mettawee. In a visually stunning production that includes large and small puppets, and an enormous Grandmother Earth, we follow the character of Nanabozho, the trickster hare, whose fearless, sometimes dimwitted impulses have unpredictable results. Our unlikely hero is called from the arms of his Grandmother Earth to embark on a dangerous mission where he encounters hostile frog demons, amicable beavers, and a bevy of spirit women. The world we have inherited appears to have been shaped by the combined efforts of various sources, including wise benefactors, evil beings, and a willful, capricious buffoon. according to Ralph Lee: 'It's great to be taking a second look at these stories, which we first visited in 1980. There are plenty of opportunities to stretch the imagination in the creation of this colorful cast of characters. as Grandmother Earth says: "If the world were a perfect place, people would have it too easy-they'd turn soft." We relish the work process and find the spark of life in our endeavors'.
