The Gift performed by John Aitken & Gail Noonan - Fri Jun 15, Sat Jun 16

The Gift is a 2 person performance by John Aitken and Gail Noonan that will be presented at the Agricultural Hall on June 15th and 16th at 7:30 PM.

Doors open at 7 PM. Tickets are $12 and will be available at the Trading Post and Happy Tides starting June 1.

Everyone has a story. The Gift is one person’s journey through challenge and adversity in a boy’s early years. He is too young to understand the world he has been born into and has no voice to express the turmoil of his circumstances. For a boy without words we use drumming, singing, mime and sound effects in a series of short scenes to evoke significant events in his life. As in a dream, Native symbols and metaphor tell this tale of evolution and ultimate celebration. Some scenes will be easy to decipher and some may leave you perplexed. It is all part of the experience.

An important part of the performance for us is the discussion at the end. After a short break with refreshments we will have a talking circle about this particular form of storytelling. You are welcome to stay and participate to whatever degree you feel comfortable.

This performance is not suitable for young children. Seating will be limited to allow for better sight lines for the audience.
