for Tucson's 2015 Cesar Chavez March and Rally
Borderlands Theater invites the Tucson community to help make eight giant puppets that will be used during the march and rally to honor Cesar Chavez this March.
Giant puppets, sometimes called "cabezudos" are a tradition in popular theatre that goes back centuries in Latin America and Europe. In the USA, the Bread and Puppet Theatre has made giant puppet spectacles since the 1960s. Giant puppets are fun and awe inspiring, just the thing to inject a sense of pride at this year's Chavez celebration.
Borderlands will host four weekends of giant puppet making sessions open to families, youth, student groups, seniors, school clubs, and anyone interested in helping out. A great family activity! Appropriate for ages 8-100!
Sessions will take place at
Borderlands Theater Courtyard:
40 W. Broadway in downtown Tucson
11am to 3pm, Saturdays and Sundays on the following dates:
February 21 & 22
February 28 & March 1
March 7 & 8
March 14 & 15
