The Fremont Arts Council is excited to present our
Artist in Residence for the 2016 Fremont Solstice Parade!
Giant Puppet & Float Parade Ensemble Workshops for
“Return of the Dark”
Thursdays & Fridays, May 12 – June 17
1pm – 9pm
Powerhouse Art Studio
3940 Fremont Ave N 98103
The Ensemble will include giant puppets on a float, one inflatable, and costumed performers. The imagery will be designed to give hope to people who may be fatigued by images of war and destruction. While there is no flinching from the destruction itself, the darkness, or fear, is exposed for it’s propaganda purposes. Throughout all of the activity, the Sun moves unafraid through the rubble offering his light and warmth to those who long to rebuild.
