From the group Oreka TX, who perform using the traditional txalaparta percussion instrument of Spain’s Basque region, this stage spectacle takes on the concept of “toys for giants.” Two giants use puppets dressed as Oreka TX to beat the txalaparta while a tumbler doll plays a bugle, and the sounds of instruments echo through the “snowglobe.” Performers emerge in
response to the music, creating a fantasy world that unfolds in overwhelming proportions.
