O Motherland!, a shadow puppet collaboration with the Bangla School of Music

Performed as part of the Outdoor Summer Series July 19, 2015 at CMAP.

With original compositions and music direction by Akram Hossain, puppet direction by Carrie Morris, production assistance by Lindsay McCaw

Puppeteers: Lindsay McCaw, Torri Ashford, Kristi Faulkner, Kya Walton and Colette Czarnecki.

Singers: Liza Bielby, Shourav, Ohona, Mumpi, Zara, Shopneel and Pias.

Birds, rivers, city streets and tigers make up the landscape in this image-based show that helps us realize that you don't really know where you are until you step away for a minute. Developed from lyrics in songs played live by the Bangla School of Music and set against shadow puppet narratives by Carrie Morris Arts Production, this performance is appropriate for all ages.
