Description: Based on the poem and recent book by Richard Lewis, Play, Said the Earth to Air is a performance piece created by The Touchstone Center Theatre Ensemble. The performance invites the audience to experience play through a combination of music, mime, narration, and movement. After the show, children will participate in a hands-on arts workshop to create a many-layered collage of visual images and words inspired by their playful natures.
Venue Description: The Brooklyn Children's Museum was the first museum created specifically for children. Founded in 1899, the museum's model of youth-oriented exhibitions sparked the creation of similar institutions around the globe, and today the Brooklyn Children's Museum continues as a premier institution for children, its walls overflowing with imagination and wonder-filled learning experiences. The exhibits feature hands-on activities, role-playing opportunities, authentic museum specimens and artifacts, and hundreds of new things to discover about the arts, culture, science, and the environment.
