To celebrate, February, Dominican Heritage Month, SEA is presenting Manuel Antonio Morin's participatory and puppet play, The Encounter of Juan Bobo and Pedro Animal. Hysterical events revolve around these incredibly charming but not too bright characters. Juan Bobo and Pedro Animal are like Tweedle Dee and Twiddle Dum with a special touch, two kids from different islands that do everything backwards.
Every other second they find themselves in sticky situations and that is when they turn to their most valuable resource: the audience. Children participate in this circus-style play and in turn see how these two characters find self-esteem and confidence. Audiences enter a fantastic environment with live music (drums, bells,flutes), choreography, puppets, slapstick, and Dominican and Puerto Rican folklore/culture.
