The North Barn Theatre Collective is bringing a new puppet show to audiences across Nova Scotia. Being toured entirely by bicycle, Troubling Joy: A Bicycle Puppet Circus will be visiting rural and urban communities across seven counties. This original performance will be performed outside for small audiences from August 14th through September 26th, 2021.

Troubling Joy: A Bicycle Puppet Circus features a cast of puppets who, in recognizing their discontent with the social structures that dictate how they live, discover the pleasure of change. Playing within the traditional circus format, the North Barn Theatre Collective uses puppetry, moving image, and song to investigate the promise of happiness, its illusions and our collective capacity to imagine new futures. This show appeals to the senses of all ages.

Admission is Pay What You Can, but it would help us for planning if tickets are reserved in advance. Bring your own picnic blanket or lawn chairs, and please respect social distancing.
