September 23 & 24, at 7pm
Forest Park, Springfield, MA
Presented by City Mosaic
In partnership with Springfield Public Schools and the Community Music School of Springfield
Directed by Stacy Klein
Created by the Double Edge Ensemble
Based on Double Edge’s Once a Blue Moon - Cada Luna Azul, this large-scale outdoor performance features the Double Edge Ensemble and renowned Argentine guest musicians Manuel Uriona (Bersuit Vergarabat) and Micaela Farias Gomez (Santadiabla), and will showcase youth performers from Springfield Conservatory of the Arts Public School.
The story follows a traveler who returns to his hometown after many years. Memories of his past and stories about the town’s colorful inhabitants evoke reflections about an increasingly universal theme: how progress can displace people. Inspired by Alejandro Jodorowski and other Latin American writers, the show is imbued with the excitement of a Latin American carnival, and draws upon memory, culture, and song.
Free and open to the public. The Spectacle will begin at the Forest Park Carriage House.
