More About... Saltamontes Puppet Arts and "Babui"
Have you heard? Babui is coming. Join us this weekend for the sole North American presentation of "Babui" for 2010.
The puppeteers arrive with only a box. But it is empty - almost empty. There are no puppets in that box, only a book, an egg and an old newspaper. What could be in that egg? And how to hatch it? Three very different animals, an ostrich, a tiger, and an elephant, all give their best but to no avail. After much time it finally hatches on its own, and a delightful new creature, Babui, is born.
Saltamontes Puppet Arts was founded in 1994 in Bogota, Columbia and moved to Bavaria, Germany in 2004. "Babui" premiered in 2006 and received a prize as one of the best shows at the International Puck Festival in Cluj Napoca, Romania.
Performance will be at 1pm and 3pm Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are available online or by calling 617-731-6400.
