A 35 minute show followed by a Q&A with the performer.

In "String", movement and an array of simple objects inspire a journey into discovery.  The minimal set is a metaphor of a blank page, and upon it, a brilliant red rope leading to a huge canvas bundle.  When the show begins, Key, the character, is waiting, playing cat's cradle. She discovers the red winding rope. Following the rope, Key finds the large bundle and unpacks seven brown paper bags. Each bag holds a new emotion; the seventh, the bag of dreams and the future, will be opened...tomorrow.  

This gentle presentation of object theater, performed by movement artist Mary Margaret Moore, takes very young children on a simple and yet magical journey of discovery.   String aims to stimulate children's imagination and stretch their capacity to decipher emotions.

"String" is a collaboration between Isabelle Kessler, writer and director, and Mary Margaret Moore, performer.

These free presentations of String are made possible through partnership with ROCKiT Community Arts in Beacon Hill as well as funding from Seattle Office of Arts & Culture.
