Join the Ordway for the 2018 Flint Hills Family Festival. Plan a day of excitement with your friends and family, featuring the best international performing artists from around the globe! This festival will include a sensory-friendly performance of Panda's Home on June 2 at 10 a.m. Our smallest Festival-goers will embark on an immersive theater experience that follows a panda on an imaginary journey through China’s stories, traditions, and culture. Through the use of dance, sound, interactive projected images and play, the dancers and students alike will encounter bamboo forests, monsters, fireworks, and kites as they explore the five elements of Wu Xing—wood, fire, earth, metal and water. Presented by Compagnia TPO (Italy) in co-production with China’s TONG Production and Teatro Metastasio Di Prato. For more information and to purchase tickets, click here.
