The Telegraph School presents “Water Dreams,” an experimental site-specific eco-theater performance along the Cherry Valley Creek on Friday, October 6th at 6pm at 2 Genesee Street, Cherry Valley.
Enjoy an evening of stories, puppets, magic and nature and then join us for the opening reception for WATER, at 25 Main Collective, 25 Main St, Cherry Valley, from 5pm – 9pm. Both events are free and open to the public.
“Water Dreams” is performed by the Water Ensemble, a interdisciplinary performance troupe from the Central NY region, based in Cherry Valley and directed by Angelica Palmer. The performance blends myth, magic, and history, and draws from the community’s stories, music, dance, and puppets created during the free summer workshops offered through the Cherry Valley Water Project.
“Magic is all around us every day, if you know where to look. The Cherry Valley Creek has nourished the plants, animals and humans in our valley for thousands of years. We are excited to share the stories and magic of the water with you, as you walk along the creek in the autumn twilight,” says Telegraph School founder and performance artist Angelica Palmer.
The performance and the gallery opening are both free and open to the public. Learn more and reserve your spot for the performance at thetelegraphschool.org.
