Through myth, magic and puppetry, River: A Puppet Myth journeys into the distant future to reflect upon our recent past and how stories have shaped the lives that dwell in the Bow River Valley.
In 1610, Henry Hudson departed England on a mission to chart the arctic sea…he never returned. Merging fact, fiction and fantasy New West Theatre teams with Mudfoot Theatre to tell a story of magic, romance, and adventure on Hudson’s ice-locked expedition. Three actors jump between ten characters while creating a live soundscape on an acoustic ship made from the most unlikely things. A contemporary folk tale set against the frigid backdrop of Hudson’s final expedition, The Hudson Bay Epic weaves a tall tale like you’ve never experienced before.
