ONE MORNING I LEFT Comes to Walton Arts Center and Arts Center Of The Ozarks
Walton Arts Center and the Arts Center of the Ozarks have joined forces to bring an award-winning Chilean theater company and their Spanish language production to Northwest Arkansas for two public performances on Saturday, April 14 at 11 am and 4 pm.
Presented by Walton Arts Center at the Arts Center of the Ozarks and performed in Spanish, "One Morning I Left..." is a musical trip with Ana, Gaspar and Oliver to discover what inhabits nature. Join her as she milks a cow in a field, flies on a bird through the desert, dives among bubbles and explores the jungle. Children are invited to discover and enjoy this journey of colors, sounds, landscapes and animals.
Fabrics, buckets, funnels and ropes come to life weaving a sense of magic and wonder throughout the story. Music, both sounds and live songs, breathe life into the production making it entertaining for kids and their families.
"We so appreciate this partnership with Arts Center of the Ozarks," said Laura Goodwin, vice president of learning and engagement for Walton Arts Center. "We are excited about the opportunity to bring this award-winning performance to the heart of downtown Springdale."
Performed by Teatro de Occasion, "One Morning I Left..." has been enjoyed by children and families in North, Central and South America as well as Europe and Asia. Teatro de Occasion recently received the Pulsar Award, Chile's equivalent to a Grammy Award, for Best Artist for Children.
