Artist Series: Life in Motion-The Cashore Marionettes

“Each creation is a slice of life, awe-inspiring in the minutest detail."–The Toronto Sun

Unmatched in artistry, grace and refinement of movement, the internationally acclaimed Cashore Marionettes redefine the art of puppetry. Life in Motion is a concert of more than a dozen marionette pieces, performed by Joe Cashore in full view of the audience. With music from composers such as Vivaldi and Beethoven and without words, each vignette explores a different facet of human experience, the performance arranged like a roller coaster, carrying the audience through a series of emotional ups and downs, turns and surprises. At times humorous, beautiful and unexpected, Life in Motion is a simulacrum of humanity, a masterpiece of movement and manipulation.

Life in Motion is a show for adult and young adult audiences with a taste for the universal. This event is our free special engagement for the season. Ticket required. All seats reserved.

Season tickets available July 15. Individual tickets available September 5. Learn more about ticketing and the 2013-14 Smith Artist Series Season.
