In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre Presents, 

Coming Home to Wild

New Works on Extinction and Resilience.

An immersive, intergenerational evening of stories, music, and community, with a light meal.

All ticket income will benefit Indigenous Environmental Network (IEN).

Coming Home to Wild reminds us: we are not the only ones wondering what wholeness feels like as the world burns.  Through music, puppet performance, and a light community meal we will strengthen our collective resistance and resilience.  

Experience three new puppet works by Julie Boada (Anishinabe), Rebekah Crisanta de Ybarra (enrolled Maya-Lenca), and Wild Conspiracy (Elle Thoni and company) who ask: in the face of extinction and climate catastrophe, what do our ancestors have to teach us about resilience? You are invited to join the circle as our ancestors, human and more than human, speak, sing, and soar. Encounter stories of our time that awaken rather than paralyze reminding us of the world as it truly is, in all its beauty and its pain. 

Together we will answer the call to come back to the truth of who we are: wild.
