String, a dance and object theatre show for children ages 2-6, will come to Beacon Hill next week for five showings at 9:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday, November 14 and 15, and at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, November 16. The 35-minute show will be followed by a Q&A session with performer Mary Margaret Moore.
The show’s website describes String thusly:
“Every time that we witness 40 children focusing on the noise of a paper bag, we are deeply touched. Their deep concentration is truly magical.
“To create for children is to challenge them. In String, we stretch their capacity to decipher emotions. Small details, a raised eyebrow, a pinky movement, is enough to convey an emotion.”
Preschool classes from Beacon Hill’s Denise Louie Education Center and JosÃ© MartÃ Child Development Center will attend the shows, but there are seats open to the public at each performance. Tickets are free, however, you must reserve a seat through Brown Paper Tickets.
If you can’t attend next week’s show, mark December 27 and 30 on your calendar, when the show will return to the Garden House. Watch the String website for details.
