Joe Chvala and the Flying Foot Forum present a characteristically bold new production throughout downtown Saint Paul inspired by the city’s past. Part enchanting history tour, part splashy dance party, Passing Through Pig’s Eye is a roving romp of wildly entertaining and eclectic dance, music and comedy.
The production begins and ends at Park Square Theatre. In between, you’ll be guided to multiple locations throughout downtown Saint Paul—both inside and out—where history is revealed in intriguing, percussive ways.
Engaging audiences of all ages, Passing Through Pig’s Eye offers two performance tracks from which to choose, each one a separate performance with its own unique journey through Saint Paul. (You’re encouraged to return for the alternate track at a later performance time!) Regardless of which performance track you attend, both options offer a highly enjoyable, complete excursion.
Accessibility: Passing Through Pig’s Eye is wheelchair accessible and open to all. Everyone will need to move from place to place, but the degree to which each audience member cares to participate is completely up to them. Limited seating will be provided in each setting for those who prefer to sit.
ASL-interpreted performance: Saturday, Sept. 10, 7:30 p.m..
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board and the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
