Sneak Preview: Ajijaak on Turtle Island


_____



La MaMa presents

Ajijaak on Turtle Island
An IBEX Puppetry Production
Directed by Ty Defoe and Heather Henson

Separated from her family, young whooping crane Ajijaak undertakes her first migration from Canada to coastal Texas alone. Her journey is disrupted by environmental, industrial, and mythical chaos. Ajijaak must follow her intuition to fly onward, learning from the neo-indigenous communities she encounters along the way. Bringing community together through puppetry, traditional dances, projections and kites, ​Ajijaak on Turtle Island will inspire the next generation of eco-champions.

Recommended for ages 6 and up.
