The joy of expressive imagination is alive and well within the talented troop at Terrapin Puppet Theater. Let go of the rope holding you to the dock and let your imagination set sail as you watch Boats this weekend at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts.
Boats, from Australia’s Terrapin Puppet Theatre, is a story of Nick and Jof, two life-long friends who meet through bizarre circumstances involving a chicken, a deserted island and a sombrero. The two mariners are fleeing their pasts and embracing adventure. The ingenious production is enacted with puppets, acrobatics, singing and sound effects created onstage with two microphones, one of which goes in the water. Watch as magic unfolds from simple objects that would be found on a boat’s galley. Sound effects are created live, a boat is cut from bread, a bird tied from a rope, a circus hides in a jacket and, finally, a storm is made with a teacup.
