Where does food "come from" and from what is it made? Here's a lively primer for urban bumpkins and upcountry gardeners alike. Fusing cutting-edge science and age-old puppetry, DIRT takes audiences on an extravagant journey of discovery into the Great Underneath---opening the curtain on the epic alchemy of plants, the fungi's dance of mutual delight, and the microbes' herculean labors. Featuring live music and a myriad of puppets ranging from 12" to 12' tall, the show reminds earthly residents of all ages quintessential truths from the ground beneath their feet.

This free public performance is made possible by a grant from the Ann & Abe Effron Fund of the Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley.
