The WeeFestival | Mokatek and the Missing Star
Wednesday, May 15
An event every day that begins at 12:00am, repeating until Thursday, May 16, 2019
One thing Mokatek loves to do before sleep every night is to count the stars. Ever since his mother disappeared beneath the river waters, he likes to recount his day to the brightest star in the sky, his compass that protects him from above: the North Star. One night, during a full moon, the North Star disappears. It is the beginning of an initiation journey to find the bright star and realize his inner strength and courage.
A theatrical blend of puppets, objects, songs and music, this multi-sensory show introduces children to Indigenous languages and First Nations cosmology. Through their close encounter with the Abenakis (“people of the land of the dawn”) and the Maliseet (“people of the beautiful river”) children will learn about the rich cultures of these First Peoples.
