Heather Henson, daughter of beloved Muppet founder Jim Henson, and Ibex Puppetry perform their newest spectacle of puppetry, kites and aerial artistry.

The intangible spirits of wind and flight visit a young crane and lead it to its destiny. Unifying dance, kites, and puppetry with themes of seasonal movement and the Earth’s energy flow, the process is unforgettable. Awarded “Best Show” at the 21st UNIMA Festival in Chengdu, China [June 2012], the show features puppets, kites, and flags from independent artists and the Jim Henson Creature Shop.
