“An immersive environmental spectacle for the whole family” —Broadway World
From the daughter of puppet legend Jim Henson

Kites morph into soaring birds and branches transform into a gentle deer. Visionary puppetry artist Heather Henson and Grammy Award winner Ty Defoe bring together an ensemble of North American First Nations people to tell the tale of Ajijaak, a young whooping crane who must face her first migration south. Indigenous songs, language, and dances weave together in a colorful spectacle about the dangerous effects of climate change on animals and our Mother Earth. With puppets from Jim Henson’s Creature Shop™ and music by Ty Defoe, Grammy nominee Dawn Avery, and Kevin Tarrant of The SilverCloud Singers, Ajijaak on Turtle Island takes flight in a celebration of the natural world sure to inspire the next generation of eco-champions.
