Steelhouse Family Weekend will feature two immersive theater experiences on the Steelhouse Omaha stage and outside patio. Interact with lights and sound inside and with two giant puppet hands outside for a unique and fun-filled afternoon. Performances are Saturday and Sunday at 1 and 4 p.m. All ages welcome.
Compagnia TPO is a pioneering, multi-disciplinary performance group that melds music, dance, art, sculpture, digital media, lighting, and sound into a one-of-kind, interactive experience. In “Butterflies,” members of the audience participate with the actors and on the video projection set in the middle of the Steelhouse floor.
Following the 45-minute performance inside, families will then move outside to the Steelhouse patio for the Pittsburgh based Squonk Opera’s “Hand in Hand.”
Squonk’s “Hand to Hand” is propelled by two giant puppet hands, each the size of a house, and rigged like a sailing ship. Squonk’s original rock music drives a journey where both the band and the audience members come together to grab the rigging, each individual powering movement of giant fingers.
