Sova Dance & Puppet Theater

The performance highlights the great flight and transformation of the butterfly from Mexico to Canada displayed visually through the presence of various butterflies, but only the monarch makes the greatest and longest flight in such mass numbers. Their great flight is contrasted by the slow, deliberate, grounded and fun rhythm of the caterpillar! Live music, giant puppets and pure joy prevail here in our journey.

Sova Dance and Puppet Theater celebrates humanity and the environment by engaging audiences through live performance combining the moving body, puppetry, mask, video, dance, and artistic installations. The combined ingredients communicate that which cannot be described in words, and therefore are accessible to communities around the globe. “Sova” means “owl” in Slovak and also refers to an asteroid belt named by a Czech astronomer.
