A half-dozen musicians on instruments as typical as electric bass and keyboards and as unusual as bagpipes and vertical accordion gyrate at the base of a 40-foot steam-breathing Lady Pneumatica. Her giant head is crowned by a wind turbine and mane of sun-colored sails. Her inflatable blue arms rise and fall as cannon drums shoot smoke rings and a labyrinth of air-puffed tentacles toward the audience. Between musical riffs, performers inflate like blowfish and musically activate head tubes that wave in the breeze.
Squonk Opera’s Pneumatica is a 30-minute outdoor production – all powered by air, vortex fans and blowers and driven by original live music, and Mary B. Martin School of the Arts has chosen to start its fall season with this soaring Seussian spectacle as a part of ETSU PRIDE events. Five free 30-minute shows will lift off Friday, Aug. 28, at 4 and 7 p.m. and Saturday, Aug. 29, at 11 a.m., 2 p.m. and 5 p.m., and each will be followed by a talkback with Pneumatica’s creators and performers.
Bring a lawn chair and join us for this unique event.
