Aerial Tales of Baba Yaga
September 19-27, 2019
The Museum of Russian Art
Sandbox Theatre, in partnership with The Museum of Russian Art, presents a world premiere show in a one of a kind venue! Bone Mother is folklore come to life in the air above you. A new play created from scratch by Sandbox’s aerial wing The Swingset, Bone Mother is an examination of femininity’s untamable perseverance, its kinship with nature, and its expression through a spectrum of genders — all in the face of society’s history to deny, ignore, repress and vilify its progress.
In the depths of a dark Russian forest, in a house perched atop chicken legs and surrounded by a fence of flaming skulls, lives a hideous old crone named Baba Yaga. Do you dare enter? In the forest there are wild things – ostracized, forgotten, shadow things. And you. Who will you be in the moonlight?
