Great Small Works performance at Wesleyan University Friday and Saturday includes Ballard Institute Director

Ballard Institute director John Bell will perform with the Brooklyn-based theater company Great Small Works Friday and Saturday, February 3rd and 4th at 8 p.m. Wesleyan University’s Center for the Arts.

The performances at Wesleyan will include Three Graces, a cantastoria (picture-based storytelling work) in which three mythical graces-Harmony, Strategy and Splendor-float down to earth for an op-art romp inspired by Grace Paley, Grace Kelly, Grace Jones and Grace Lee Boggs; and Toy Theater of Terror As Usual, Episode 12: Desert and Ocean, a surreal serial drama using excerpted texts and images quickly cut from daily newspapers.

“[Great Small Works has] breathed new, pointed life into the form of toy theater.” – The Village Voice

Tickets are $15 general public; $12 senior citizens and students.
