The Art is Medicine Show | El Show el Arte es Medicina rides again!

This June and July we'll tour two shows in repertory by bicycle: 

A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings/ Un Señor Muy Viejo con unas Alas Enormes at Juilliard Park 2014

The Art is Medicine Show / El Show el Arte es Medicina: The Garden bursts into life!  Mr. and Mrs. Lizard have lost their wedding ring! A seashell sings! There is a poetic ode to the bicycle. Featuring the poetry of Federico Garcia Lorca, The Art is Medicine Show is a fluid, visual, poetic extravaganza. A gaggle of suitcases open to reveal theaters in miniature; an ocean, outer space, and a vaudeville stage where tiny skeletons sing and dance. These are just some of the many worlds we carry by bicycle. This iconic show travels to the Redwood Food Bank Summer Lunch sites this July. Show runs approx. 30 minutes. Check below for a full schedule. 

A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings/ Un Señor Muy Viejo con unas Alas Enormes: An angel falls to earth into the front yard of Elisenda and Pelayo. No one knows what to do! "Angels in these times are bad luck" remarks a neighbor. The Imaginists create an all new original adaptation of the beloved short story by Gabriel García Márquez. Beautiful visuals, puppetry, masks and music accompany this magical tale. Show runs approx. 40 minutes. This show will travel to seven city parks this June and July.
