Coming Up: Water Creatures/Movers Performance and Workshops - Bay Area Discovery Museum

The Bay Area Discovery Museum has a new quarterly artist-in-residence program, and has some great workshops and performances coming up. The new artist is Jukebox Radio, who uses shadow puppetry, singing and illustrated storytelling, in addition to movement and games.

During workshops, families will collaborate on arts activities related to each of the performance themes: water movers, water creatures and water hogs. The final project will be a water sculpture to be installed at the museum.

Here are the upcoming performances and workshops:

Water Movers Performances & Workshops
--Saturday, November 2, 3 - 4:30 p.m.
--Sunday, November 3, 10:30 a.m. - 12 p.m.
During the 45 minute Water Movers performances, the artists will perform songs, share illustrated stories, and lead families in activities and games to explore concepts of how water moves. Workshops will challenge families to design a Rube Goldberg device using recycled and everyday materials and toys to transfer water from one vessel to another.

Water Creatures Performance & Workshop
--Sunday, November 24, 10:30 a.m. - 12 p.m.
In the second installation of the series, the performance will feature a variety of real and imaginary water creatures, including fish, mermaids, sea lions, and more in these aquatic adventures. The performers will explore how moving water affects aquatic creatures using the Jukebox puppet theater and special water creature shadow puppets.

After the show, families can construct their own shadow-puppet sea creatures using chopsticks, scissors, tape and paper, and will engage in dramatic play with them in the Jukebox Radio.

These workshops and performances are free with admission.
