Hand to Hand Squonk Opera

…surreal and poetic.” – USA Today

Squonk Opera’s Hand to Hand is a magnum opus of music, mischief and marvelous stagecraft. Rigged like a sailing ship and sized like a house, two giant puppet hands propel this outdoor spectacle alongside a live performance of propulsive progressive rock from Squonk Opera. For 25 years, these Pittsburgh post-industrialists have fused music, design, science and art to bring people face to face in festive ways that The New York Times has called “ingenious, hallucinatory and hypnotic.” Indeed, the only things heavy-handed here are the massive mitts, which audience members can even help manipulate to become part of the fun. This timely, boisterous extravaganza of comic invention, fantastic jams and shared experience is a show of hands that’s larger than life.
