Ajijaak on Turtle Island – Benefit at the Al. Ringling Theatre @ Al. Ringling Theatre
Jan 24 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Tickets are on sale now for a Broadway production coming to Baraboo, Wisconsin in January, when Ajijaak on Turtle Island takes the stage at the historic Al. Ringling Theatre. Click here to purchase tickets!

This lavish production is the latest of Heather Henson, daughter of Jim Henson, and founder of IBEX Puppetry. Only two public performances will be held in Wisconsin Thursday, Jan. 24, 2019, and Friday, Jan. 25, 2019, at 7:30 p.m. Both performances benefit the Al. Ringling Theatre and the International Crane Foundation, who are partnering to bring this production to Wisconsin.

The contemporary artistic spectacle invites theatergoers to follow Ajijaak, a young Whooping Crane separated from her parents, tracing her first migratory journey alone through the richness of indigenous culture and themes of survival and perseverance in a luscious demonstration of the tender interconnectivity of all living things. View the trailer for the performance.

Henson is best known for her environmental spectacles, original performances designed to provide a transformative experience for the audience through the use of non-traditional storytelling. She blends the disciplines of puppetry, dance and kiting with evocative sound and light effects to create immersive, interactive presentations that engage all of the senses and awaken the soul.

The performance is co-directed and written by Ty Defoe, an Ojibwa and Oneida performance artist, originally from Wisconsin and now living in New York City. The production features a variety of traditional Native American dances, songs and an original score composed by DeFoe and other musical collaborators. Indigenous imagery and breathtaking original puppet creations, some towering on stage over 20 feet in height, add to the storytelling.

Henson, Defoe and IBEX Puppetry Studio are offering this production in only four cities in the United States, including New York City, Chicago, Rhode Island and Baraboo. While in Baraboo, the company will be offering two complementary matinee performances beginning at 10 a.m. for students. Click here for a first-come, first-served reservation for your classroom!

Tickets are $55 and $75 for main floor seats. Full boxes also are available and include a private reception, with a meet and greet following the performance. Tickets may also be purchased at the Al. Ringling Theatre box office, 136 Fourth Avenue, Baraboo, Wisconsin, and by phone at 608-356-8864.

Sponsorship opportunities are available. Please contact the International Crane Foundation or the Al. Ringling Theatre for more details.
