Squonk Opera In-Person
Celebrate The Lange Trust of the Sandusky Library's 50th Anniversary with Squonk Opera! This event takes place on Adams Street between the Library and the Courthouse. Shows are at 1:00pm and 3:00pm. In case of rain, shows will be in the Adams School Gymnasium.
Hand to Hand is propelled by 2 giant puppet hands, each the size of a house and rigged like a sailing ship, and music that blows the roof off. The Squonkers, dwarfed by the hands, climb a multi-tiered stage. Music rises from a single finger flicking an organ key, as natural an expression of humanity as a wave or a fist. Squonk's original progressive rock drives a journey that is spectacular, plaintive, and comic. In this melee, the giant thumbs detach to become truly opposable and challenge each other with guitars. Audience members come together to grab the rigging, each individual powering a larger movement of giant fingers, a web of connections, a single dance. We want to encourage shared discovery, people face to face, festive, and making a community of the imagination.
THIS EVENT IS FOR ERIE COUNTY RESIDENTS ONLY.
