Tricksters will delight with this bilingual adaptation of a traditional Mexican folktale. Brother Coyote wants one thing and one thing only, to catch and eat one of Doña Conchita’s plump chickens. But quick-witted Sister Fox is always one step ahead of him, waiting to trick him with one of her clever schemes to keep all the chickens to herself! Spanish, English and yes...plenty of chickens!

This performance is funded in part by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and Georgia Council for the Arts.

Behind the Scenes of
Brother Coyote and Sister Fox

About the Puppetry Style
Thistle Theatre specializes in Tabletop puppetry, a variation of the Bunraku-style of puppetry. Bunraku is a form of puppetry in Japan that originated over 300 years ago. While Thistle Theatre modifies this art form, the concept remains the same. One, two or three puppeteers operate each puppet. The puppeteers wear black hoods and costumes to symbolize their invisibility. It doesn't take long for the audience to forget the puppeteers and become engrossed in the story. There are also Rod Puppets used in this production for the Chicken, Cucaracha (cockroach), Bee and Baby Chick characters.

About the Company
Thistle Theatre is a touring theatre company from Seattle founded in 1992 by Artistic Director, Jean Enticknap. Thistle Theatre's mission is to celebrate and enhance the art of puppetry through unique, well-crafted presentations of puppet theatre for audiences of all ages to enjoy.
