In this wonderful introduction to contemporary dance for young audiences, Irish company Cahoots NI explores the true tale of two male penguins in New York City’s Central Park Zoo who adopted and raised a baby chick.
After swimming and playing together happily, these two penguins set up a nest and tried to hatch a rock. An attentive zookeeper brought them an egg that needed fostering and the two friends became real parents. Initially reported in the New York Times, this story has been the subject of multiple picture books exploring themes of love, acceptance, and family. Bring your young children and enjoy original music, an ingenious set, and engaging choreography in a child-friendly environment.
Free performances are available for school and homeschool groups on Friday, March 6. Attendance is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Please contact Maria Joranko at firstname.lastname@example.org or (614) 292-6493 for more information or to register.
