"Beyond Boreas! A Puppet Show of Frozen Follies and Mythical Meltdowns
Performances in the MN150 exhibit Jan. 30 and 31 at 1:30, 2:30 and 3:30 p.m.
From ancient gods and goddesses to the icons of the Saint Paul Winter Carnival, myths have helped humans battle against - and embrace - the elements throughout history. Minnesota legends King Boreas and Vulcanus Rex give a brief and comic overview of their origins through puppets and storytelling in this short, interactive play written and performed by Shari Aronson and Christopher Griffith of
Z Puppets Rosenschnoz.
King Boreas and Vulcanus Rex will take you on a whirlwind tour of weather myths and legends from around the world and then bring you back home to Minnesota, where they uncover the origins of the Saint Paul Winter Carnival.
Performed in the MN150 exhibit, "Beyond Boreas!" is sure to delight all audiences. Don't miss your chance to romp through the muck and mayhem of Minnesota weather myths with the King of the Northern Winds and his eternal foe, the King of Fire!
