We are pleased to announce the launch of the DZS educational puppet show series, the result of a second year of partnership between CMAP (Carrie Morris Arts Production) and the Detroit Zoological Society (DZS). There ecological and important environmental works will include three new performance commissions, in addition to special behind-the-scenes footage exploring the creative collaboration between CMAP and DZS staff, geared toward all ages and all audience members who are young at heart.
Shows kickoff Saturday July 18 at 11:00AM on the Detroit Zoo Facebook Page and run through mid-September. The first in the series Sustainable Palm Oil Superheroes will explore what palm oil is, where it comes from, and how sustainable use of this product helps us save the planet. Consecutive shows Gorillas On The Line on August 15, and Respect and Reverence at the Detroit Zoo on September 19, will continue this examination of critical topics that are not just globally relevant but also play a role here in Detroit.
