City of Frogs weaves together folk tales and myths into a modern fable of a wooden boy seeking to find what it means to be alive. Along his journey he meets a menagerie of odd characters: a junk collector who sees life in garbage, an ancient witch who has lived so long the forest has transformed around her, a golem of mud who stops to listen whenever he hears music and beasts of all kinds. Featuring giant puppets, beasts, birds, masks, stilt walkers, song, dance, junkmen and shadow puppets.



Written, Created and Directed by: Jan Burger and Donovan Zimmerman in collaboration with the cast and the community.

Original music by: The award winning Paperhand band.
