About Walk the Night: Visions of Shadows
Based on William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. . .Five missing people—four from decades past and one recent. Weeks ago, local celebrity, Omaha’s Jon Purcell, began acting strangely while researching the original Missing Persons cases of four well-known, quarreling lovers from years gone by. Then he, himself, vanished. The answer lies in a Floating Festival that appears and disappears yearly—never in the same place, never at the same time.
Audiences attend this very festival, found this year in ConAgra Building 1, at the Omaha headquarters of ConAgra Foods. See live performing animals, puppets that come to life, feats of movement, and mysteries revealed before your eyes. Follow whom you will. See what you can.
Featuring music by April Faith-Sakler, Azure Ray (Saddle Creek Records), and Andrew Heringer (Chop Shop Records).
