Sneaky squirrel robs girl!

In this poignantly silly adventure tale for families, Sylvie is sent to the backyard to hang up the laundry. The moment her back is turned, a mischievous squirrel steals her favorite piece of clothing and runs off. When Sylvie gives chase, an entire world emerges from her laundry basket, and curious characters show her the way through mysterious lands. This award-winning puppetry show with live music accompaniment is created and performed by Bonnie Duncan with music by Brendan Burns and Tony Leva. For ages 3 and up, this show features physical theater, puppetry, and a giant pile of clothes.

This show is recipient of a 2013 Jim Henson Foundation Family Grant. Squirrel Stole My Underpants was developed with the generous support of Puppet Showplace Theatre's Incubator program.

Twyla Tharp Dance

Residency:
September 30-October 28, 2018
Performance:
Saturday, October 20, 2018
@ 7:30 pm

Orpheum Film & Performing Arts Center
6050 Main Street, Village of Tannersville

Following a month-long residency at the Orpheum Film & Performing Arts Center, Twyla Tharp and her dancers will stage a performance of two earlier works, plus works in progress.

“Minimalism and Me” includes projections of Twyla’s early art work as backdrops for selections from dance pieces choreographed during the period of 1965 and 1970 and reconstructed for this piece. Created for a residency by Twyla Tharp in December, 2017 for the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, “Minimalism and Me” recollects Tharp’s experiences while living among major visual artists of the time, illuminating the progression of minimalism in the 1960’s and 1970’s and the influence the movement had on her choreography.

The second work will be a restaging of two of the dances in the original “Eight Jelly Rolls,” inspired by Jelly Roll Morton. Tharp’s first work intended for a proscenium stage, “Eight Jelly Rolls” premiered in 1971. Jelly Roll Morton’s original recordings recall the atmosphere of the Roaring Twenties as America shook itself loose from stiff European traditions. The comedic timing and slippery flow of movement in the choreography reflects the sense of ease and freedom of the 1920s. Tharp’s solo, nicknamed “The Drunk,” emphasizes the natural loose-limbed athleticism that became synonymous with her work.

Works may be subject to change.

Twyla Tharp has choreographed more than 160 works for her company as well as for the Joffrey Ballet, the New York City Ballet, Paris Opera Ballet, London’s Royal Ballet, and American Ballet Theatre. She’s won two Emmy Awards for television’s Baryshnikov by Tharp, and a Tony Award for the Broadway musical Movin’ Out, featuring the songs of Billy Joel. She’s winner of nineteen honorary doctorates, the Vietnam Veterans of America President’s Award, the 2004 National Medal of the Arts, the 2008 Jerome Robbins Prize, and a 2008 Kennedy Center Honor.

@ 3:30pm

Orpheum Film & Performing Arts Center

“… insightful, sometimes dark, yet always entertaining. This is high-quality youth theatre.”
—La Presse

Theatre de L’Oeil from Montreal will perform a new work, A Heart in Winter, based on the story of the Snow Queen. A Heart in Winter tells the story of a little girl Gerda as she searches for her lost friend. Her journey is fraught with adventures and pitfalls that challenge her determination. When she finally finds her friend Kay in the Snow Queen’s palace, his heart is cold, placated by the icy spell that has frozen his joys as well as his sorrows. Will Gerda manage to melt his frozen heart? A Heart in Winter questions how we react to life’s hardships. It is a touching and vibrant show with many complex and surprising twists, just like life itself.
