About this show

To celebrate Puerto Rican Heritage Month, SEA presents Dr. Manuel Antonio Morán's participatory puppet play, El Encuentro de Juan Bobo Y Pedro Animal (The Encounter of Juan Bobo and Pedro Animal) as part of their first ever BORIMIX: Puerto Rico Fest 2005! Hysterical events revolve around these incredibly charming but not too bright characters. Juan Bobo and Pedro Animal are like Tweedle Dee and Twiddle Dum with a special touch, two kids from different islands that do everything backwards. Every other second they find themselves in sticky situations and that is when they turn to their most valuable resource: the audience. Children participate in this circus-style play, and in turn see how these two characters find self-esteem and confidence. Audiences enter a fantastic environment with live music (drums, bells, flutes), choreography, puppets, slapstick and Dominican and Puerto Rican folklore/culture. This four man show includes work from puppeteer, José López (winner of the UNIMA Citation of Excellence Award, the "Tony" of Puppetry), Puerto Rican actor, Manuel A. Morán, PhD and Dominican actor, Ricardo Hinoa, along with a secret musician/magician. Performance Dates:November 12, December 10, February 25 Group Sales Number: 212-529-1545 Please arrive 15 minutes before curtain to pick up tickets.
