ONLINE PRESENTATION–An Interactive Storytelling & Puppetry Series: Good Advice from the American Southwest

May 22 @ 2:00 pm3:00 pm

Two persons hold soft juggling balls and smile.

ONLINE PRESENTATION–Good Advice is the final story in a series of interactive storytelling and puppetry workshops jointly presented by the Mission Inn Foundation and Inlandia Institute in conjunction with the Foundation’s multi-faceted project, “Toward Peace” exploring the peace activism of Mission Inn founder Frank A. Miller and its legacies for today.

Each program will feature a story told by Master Storyteller Karen Rae Kraut and an interactive puppetry workshop presented by Nicole Cloeren. In “Good Advice,” a bi-lingual tale from the American Southwest, a simple boy receives 3 pieces of advice from a mysterious wise woman and by following them in his simple way is able to marry a princess, kill a monster and receive his weight in gold.

About the Performers: Nicole Cloeren is the founder of Puppets a la Carte, where she uses puppets and techniques of improvisation to create a space of surprise and wonder in which we can all learn from one another. Karen Rae Kraut has been blending story, song, and creative movement in schools, libraries, museums, and theatres from California to East Tennessee since 1990.
