A crankie, known in the 19th century as a moving panorama, is an old storytelling art form that has found new audiences and enthusiasts. A long illustrated scroll is wound around two spools and set into a box with a viewing window. As the scroll is hand cranked, the unfolding story is narrated, sung or accompanied by music. This December Sandglass Theater is holding a crankie celebration with performances and a building workshop.
The 7th Annual Crankie Celebration Weekend includes performances by Sandglass founders, Eric Bass and Ines Zeller Bass, and guest artists.
Saturday, Dec 7 at 4 & 7:30PM
