About This Event

Tale of a Tiger
Created and performed by Rachel Hynes
Music composed and performed by Ethan Foote
Artistic Collaborators: Joshua Drew and Jess Jung

Tickets: $12 Advance, $15 at the door

What do you do to tame the tiger? Tale of a Tiger is about a little girl who turns into a tiger. Deft, physical storytelling combined with an original and unusual score, this lyrical and rough fairytale is a coming of age story that, for all its strange magic, may feel familiar. Appropriate for ages 10+.

Created and performed by Rachel Hynes, Tale of a Tiger is a vital hybrid of captivating storytelling and physical dramatics. Adeptly narrated by Hynes, this one-woman show combines the contemporary and the archaic, the realistic and the fantastical, and both the lighter and the darker sides of folkloric enchantment. It includes an innovative and unconventional musical score, created and performed by Ethan Foote on solo double bass. Inspired by a range of musical idioms, it, like Hynes, is variously a narrator and a character, both describing and becoming the world of the tiger girl and giving it form, color, and poetic life.
