Ajijaak on Turtle Island
Created, Written, Directed, & Choreographed by Ty Defoe & Heather Henson

Separated from her family, young whooping crane Ajijaak undertakes her first migration from Canada to coastal Texas alone. Her journey is disrupted by environmental, industrial, and mythical chaos. Ajijaak must follow her intuition to fly onward, learning from the neo-indigenous communities she encounters along the way. Bringing community together through puppetry, traditional dances, projections, and kites, Ajijaak on Turtle Island will inspire the next generation of eco-champions.

Founded by Heather Henson in 2000, IBEX Puppetry is an entertainment company dedicated to promoting the fine art of puppetry in all of its mediums. IBEX produces Henson's own Environmental Spectacles and Sing-Along events and nurtures the creation and continuance of contemporary puppetry works by independent artists through the Handmade Puppet Dreams film series, The Puppet Slam Network, and the PATCH Series at the Carriage House.

You can see this show for only $10 with a La MaMa ETC Membership.
