Ringing in the New Year!

Happy New Year! I can hardly believe 2014 is here. We have so many exciting projects to usher in the New Year at Treehouse Shakers and I can't wait to share them in detail in our upcoming blog posts.

This past year was a successful year for Treehouse Shakers. We had an incredible year of touring, facilitating school residencies, leading workshops, and so much more. We have enjoyed our second year performing our “baby drama” Hatched: Life on the Farm, which continues to play to sold-out houses.  Hatched has been featured on CBS-TV’s Live from The Couch and twice this year on NY1’s Parenting Report, among many online blogs, articles and listings. It has been an exhilarating process exploring a new genre. We have many more performances of Hatched lined up both in NYC and on the East Coast, so if it you haven’t had a chance to see the show, we hope to see you in the audience soon.

Always seeking to expand both our repertoire and our style of work, we are currently in the midst of developing Under The Tangle, for ages 8-13. Visually vibrant, Under the Tangle, choreographed and created By Emily Bunning, tells the story of an adolescent girl lost in a mysterious maze using modern dance, absurd costuming, and minimal text. Throughout her journey, she twists along the wooded maze confronted with obstacles, finding numerous clues and meeting many unusual characters: a flock of black birds, the daunting labyrinth guards, and a crone who swings on a ladder dangling from a tower. Under the Tangle is a visual coming of age adventure exposing emotions of loneliness, otherness, and self-accomplishment. 

Looking forward to sharing our 2014 season with you!
