Pooka in the Woods
Ipswich Moving Company dancers along with musicians and a storyteller present an hour-long dance theatre family concert based on a Celtic Folk Tale about a Pooka’s encounters in a magical forest.
A wonderful pre-holiday event for children and adults, the theatre is transformed into a magical forest where dancers turn into swans, aerial creatures become old women, and the Pooka (part human – part animal spirit) leads everyone in a celebration of the harvest. Janet Taisey Craft is director and choreographer. Performers include Jenny Carlson, Jennifer Beauchamp, Amanda Belanger, Danielle DiVito, Ann-Marie CiaralCiaraldi, Elizabeth Silveira, and six young guest dancers. Live Celtic music performed by Carol McIntyre and Adrienne Howard.
