POSTPONED: Mouse in House
April 25, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
POSTPONED to May 30th. Subject to change or to online format https://www.
Adapted from the book “The Mouse of Amherst” by Elizabeth Spires, Mouse in House reveals an unlikely friendship between a lively mouse and reclusive 19th-century poet Emily Dickinson. The mouse’s life changes forever when a gust of wind blows one of Emily’s poems her way. Moved by Emily’s evocative words that capture her own feelings, the mouse becomes determined to be a poet herself. Animations designed by media artist Bryan Leister were developed from images of Dickinson’s actual home furnishings.
A family friendly performance, Mouse in House is a lively movement and theater presentation for the young and young-at-heart. The performance incorporates spoken word, movement, music. The show opens with a brief performance by students from Go Bananas Dancing.
