The Mabel Story
The Mabel Story is a multimedia, theatrical reinterpretation of the Russian Folk tale “Vasilisa the Brave”, featuring live musical storytelling and acrobatic dance. The show has been called a “visual feast”, weaving fantastical video art and shadow play with sets and costumes that harken back to Jim Henson’s “The Dark Crystal”. Maria Pugnetti, playing both narrator and hero, tells Mabel’s story through an all original musical score. The dynamic dance trio Radha Newsom, Jahnavi Newsom, and Cyndal Ellis animate the stage with a contemporary fusion of modern dance, capoeira, acrobatics, and tribal style belly dance. The Mabel Story transports audiences of all ages on an other-worldly adventure.
