Event Description

Ralph Lee, renowned creator of masks, puppets and giant figures, presents his Mettawee River Theatre Company in "OUT OF THE PAST: Celebrating 40 Years of the mettawee Journey," a feast of excerpt from four decades of Mettawee productions, enacted by a superb company of singer/actor/puppeteers.   An abundance of Lee's creations will be on display in scenes from "the Woman Who Fell From the Sky," from the Iroquois creation story; "The Old Boat Goddess," from the indigeonous Ainu people of Japan; "Communications from a Cockroach," based on Archy & Mehitabel, and much more.   Lee's creations have been featured in productions at the Metropolitan Opera, the Lincoln Center Repertory Theatre, even Saturday Night Live (that naughty Land Shark).  Not a dance concert, but a fascinating and unique visual treat.
