The Friendly Falcons and Their Friend the Snake (Jeff Kurosaki & Tara Pelletier)
"The 10 penny hi top", 2008
Performance with papier-mâché animals 40 minutes
(Sunday 6/29, Saturday 7/26 at 3:00 PM both days)
Concept: A game show that encourages a competitive spirit, highlighted with imagination and having fun rather than on winning a prize. It is simultaneously an ode, a satire and a critique of the consequences of settling and the pursuit of happiness in colonial times, and as they still exist today.
Participate: Contestants of The 10 penny hi top will be chosen on a voluntary basis at the beginning of each show. They wear animal masks and play fun games. Give over to your imagination, where pig's butts will fly, nails will be tossed, and golden peanuts will be found.
