Beady Little Eyes & Sacred Playplace presents...
Under the Same Sky
Live Music! Storytelling! Puppetry!
Through live original music, storytelling and puppetry, Tracy McFarland and Dan
Luce uplift and attune audiences, young and old, to their own personal joy and
heart-centered intuition. Under the Same Sky features three stories: of the river,
of the forest and of the mountain. The characters range from philosophical
crows, to guitar-playing trees, to a cloud-surfing Yeti! All are theatrically
portrayed through a skillful and innovative combination of rod puppetry,
marionette, and shadow puppetry. The show is book-ended with live musical
performances which leave people feeling profoundly peaceful and elevated.
This is a 45 minute performance w/ no intermission.
