"No words are uttered in Snowflake...but the sounds of joy are immense."—Richmond Times-Dispatch
Recommended for ages 5-12.
A reception with the artist follows the show, as well as a special panel discussion that begins at 1 pm.
In Snowflake, without uttering a single word, American performer Gale LaJoye teaches children to turn sorrow into joy. Using the magic of illusion, he floats in mid-air, breaths life into toys, creates imaginative music, and dances The Nutcracker on skis.
Drawing on experience in theater, in the Japanese art of Kabuki, and in the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey circus (as a clown), LaJoye creates complex, compelling characters who face genuine adversity with humor and hope. In this funny and poignant play about an ingenious homeless man, LaJoye lives up to his international reputation as a unique and inspiring entertainer.
April 29 | 1 PM
Please join us after the performance and reception for a panel discussion on the issues of homelessness evoked in Snowflake and how they connect to realities in our own community. Follow the link below for more information.
