October 16, 2009
The Pinedale Fine Arts Council and Sublette County Library are proud to present The Cashore Marionettes performing live Wednesday, Oct. 21 at 7:00 p.m. in the Sublette County Library Lovatt Room ($5 at the door).
THE CASHORE MARIONETTES are unmatched in artistry, grace and refinement of movement. The internationally acclaimed Cashore Marionettes redefine the art of puppetry. The moving and humorous performances have astounded audiences in Europe, the Far East and across North America including stops at the Kennedy Center, Annenberg Center, Kravis Center, and many others.
The program, Simple Gifts, is a series of touching portrayals and poignant scenes from everyday life set to stunning music by such composers as Vivaldi, Strauss, Beethoven and Copland. Through a combination of virtuoso manipulation, beautiful music, theatrical illusion, and artistic insight, the original vignettes presented in Simple Gifts provide an entertaining and sensitive vision of what it is to be human. The performance explores a range of emotions with characters and actions that are amazingly convincing. The marionettes are engineering marvels and the quality of movement is extraordinary.
This show is highly recommended for adults. It is suggested that children be no younger than 8 years old.
The Cashore Marionettes is presented jointly by the Pinedale Fine Arts Council and the Sublette County Library. For more information please visit www.pinedalefinearts.com or call 307-367-7322.
