Sandy Spieler ~ A Production for the Whole Community
Sandy Spieler’s Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theater has been organizing a giant May Day parade in Minneapolis for 42 years. Every spring, the parade explodes with dancing and playing instruments with fiery verve. The parade tells a, section by section, each designed musically and visually by MayDay staff artists as a walking theatrical performance. The Free Speech Section follows, where community groups proclaim their names and causes. All together, 2000 participants march, boogie or roll down Bloomington every year! Meanwhile, tens of thousands more line the streets, enjoying the spectacle and each other. People are everywhere – on rooftops and on lawns, toting babies in backpacks and toddlers in wagons, or sitting knee to knee along on the curbs. Everybody greets neighbors from near and far with a “Happy MayDay!!” The city feels intimate, overflowing with goodwill and spring fever.
Come talk about how it works, and how we might create an event like this here in Southern Vermont!
