We are happy to have formalized our partnership this summer with creative local theater troupe the Imaginists! They will return to neighborhood parks around Roseland and Santa Rosa to once again provide bilingual puppet theater to the Redwood Empire Food Bank summer lunch crowds, and we will have our big green van o’ love in attendance at all shows. Since 2009 (the same year the Free Bookmobile was born!) the Imaginists have been bringing bicycle- and poetry-powered performances out to the people. More about this year’s edition:

The Art is Medicine Show / El Show el Arte es Medicina: The Garden bursts into life! Mr. and Mrs. Lizard have lost their wedding ring! A seashell sings! There is a poetic ode to the bicycle. Featuring the poetry of Federico García Lorca, The Art is Medicine Show is a fluid, visual, poetic extravaganza. A gaggle of suitcases open to reveal theaters in miniature; an ocean, outer space, and a vaudeville stage where tiny skeletons sing and dance. These are just some of the many worlds we carry by bicycle. Show runs approx. 30 minutes.

Here is the schedule…be sure to arrive early as start time is variable…and be sure to stick around afterward to grab some great new books to take home…remember we have titles in both English and Spanish…

July 2nd – Alicia Park @ 12:30
July 7th – Bayer Farm & Neighborhood Garden @ 12:30
July 9th – South West Community Park @ 12:30
July 21st – MLK Park @ 12:30
