Pokon (Available Nov. 13)
Type of activity: Dance Concert
Audience age: 4-12
Duration: 40-50 min
Name of performer/presenter: De Dansers
Learning areas: Dance, Music, Association, Imagination
With Pokon, De Dansers brings an ode to playing. A dance performance with live music full of fantasy and friendship for children and grownups alike who can’t sit still.
Like children raging over the playground, that's how the three performers of Pokon storm the stage. Give them some furniture, a
ladder, a guitar and some plants, and let's pretend that you ARE allowed to run, climb, lose attention and get dirty. What follows is a
whirling, twirling, hiccuping, tumbling, rumbling and singing stream of playful necessity.
This online registration of Pokon will have attractive interactive DIY inserts.

But wait--there's more!
EGG-tion HERO (Available Nov. 13)
Type of activity: Performance
Audience age: 3-8
Duration: 35 min
Name of performer/presenter: Maas Theater and Dance, Presented by The Kennedy Center
Learning areas: Arts, Culture and Drama
Imagine: an action movie, but for real. Starring one of the most booorrring action heroes ever. An egg that no one is allowed to touch. No one! Just a boring egg guarded by two ultra-boring attendants (attendants are boring guards who watch over art objects, and art is…uh…we’ll talk about that another time). And just when it gets so boring that it’s hard to stay awake, we suddenly find ourselves in a chase scene.
Check back Nov 13th for links to both shows!
These events are co-hosted by the Kennedy Center
