Musical Storytelling New work Minnesota premiere

The Music Animated concert series returns to In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre for its second installment, which features the Minnesota-based group Dreamland Faces. Bart Buch directs as puppeteers Seth Eberle, Masanari Kawahara, Angela Olson, and Laurie Witzkowski join the band onstage, creating a spectacle similar to a live music video or a musician accompanying a silent film.

The wordless chronicle delves into the history of South Minneapolis as visual echoes of the past are synchronized with the music. Dreamland Faces (Karen Majewicz, Andy McCormick, Philip Potyondy, and Christa Schneider) drive the narrative with mesmerizing compositions that conjure forgotten scenes by way of accordion, cello, piano, cornet, and musical saw. 

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
