‘Dog, A Shadow Puppet Play’

1:30 pm

In celebration of the exhibition Sacred Stories, Timeless Tales, the University of Miami Lowe Art Museum presents another form of storytelling: the art of shadow puppetry. Pablo Cano and Jim Hammond present Dog, A Shadow Puppet Play. Cano has collaborated with master puppeteer Jim Hammond in its writing and production. It is a story about a dog that pursues a “red squeaky ball” through ten famous paintings and sculptures in art history. The ball is used as a metaphor for each of our simplest pursuits of happiness. Keeping true with his use of found materials for his artwork, Cano created each shadow puppet from plastic “Beware of the Dog” signs. Dog brings together art education, music, and entertainment for young and old alike.

The performance is recommended for ages 6 years and up and lasts approximately 40 minutes. It will take place on Sunday, July 31 at 1:30 p.m. in Storer Auditorium on UM’s Coral Gables campus. Admission is $10 for Lowe members; $15 for non-members.
