Puppet Show: Floppo, The Frog Prince

Floppo is a 30 minute hand-puppet show, performed from a colorful stage worn by the puppeteer. The stage is reminiscent of those used by traveling puppeteers at Renaissance fairs. Floppo is broad and humorous version of Grimm’s classic fairy tale, The Frog Prince, with some Spanish dialogue and live music. Performed by Loren Kahn Puppet and Object Theatre.

Using puppets and/or object theater as a bridge between theater, visual art and puppetry, Loren Kahn Puppet and Object Theater brings to life a hilarious and magical world, which delights tiny children and provokes reflection in teenagers and grownups. Lauren Kahn is a puppeteer who has worked with several puppet companies as well performed solo before forming her own puppet theater in Albuquerque.

Demonstration: Arriera, the ancient craft of burro packing and droving

Ron and Pat Rundstrom will provide a demonstration of the Old Spanish Aparejo Saddle Packing System with their pack burros, Freighter and Amiga. The demonstration will include insights into the arriería, the highly organized craft institution that moved cargo on the great trail system of the Southwest.

Ron and Pat Rundstrom are educators who live on a small family ranch in the village of Chamita. They live with two burros, two cats, assorted wild birds, and a colony of hummingbirds. Ron and Pat have spent decades hiking the mesas and canyons with their pack burros;often with student groups as walking companions.

1 - 3 p.m.
Music: Lone Piñon

Lone Piñon is an acoustic trio from Santa Fe, New Mexico whose music celebrates the diversity of their region's cultural roots. Using violin, accordion, guitar, guitarrón, upright bass and harmony vocals in Spanish, English, and Nahuatl, the group has revived and updated the Chicano stringband style that once flourished in New Mexico, bringing a devoted and explosive musicianship to Northern New Mexican polkas and chotes, virtuosic Mexican huapango and son calentano, and classic borderlands conjunto.
