Event Details

FROG BELLY, RAT BONE
Axis Theatre
By Timothy Basil Ering

Evergreen Cultural Centre presents, Axis Theatre’s Production of Frog Belly, Rat Bone, by Timothy Basil Ering. Incorporating beautifully handcrafted puppets and an original pop/rock musical score, Cementland comes to life as two enigmatic garbage collectors tell the story of a very special boy whose singular wish is to find a TREASURE!
 
One day, the boy discovers a rusty tin box packed with colorful envelopes and an old wrinkled note: “Put my wondrous riches into the earth and enjoy.” So the boy opens the envelope and tosses the contents – “hundreds of tiny gray specks” – onto the ground. Nothing happens! But night will come and the specks must be protected from junkyard thieves so the boy invents a guard… “he gathers wet smelly socks, moldy old pillow stuffing and scraggly wire bringing his creation, Frog Belly Rat Bone, to life.”
 
Frog Belly isn’t the sharpest, or the quietest, but it works. In time, Cementland blooms with beautiful flowers and delicious vegetables, and the junk pile of dark grays yields to an explosion of colour. With some strategy, strong communication, a lot of patience and goodwill, we can all grow wondrous riches, transforming dark surroundings into something beautiful.

 

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

In the age of “looking down,” Axis draws young eyes up to engage them in interactive experiences that educate, inspire, and transform. Audiences experience smart, entertaining interpretations of traditional and cutting-edge physical theatre. Axis incorporates combinations of red-nose clown, mime, movement, mask work, puppetry, and improvisation to expand the meaning and impact of the stories presented. It is deceptively simple, completely fresh, and memorable.

Axis Theatre acknowledges that we live, work, and play on the unceded and traditional territories of the Coast Salish peoples – sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh), and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) nations.
