Our most recent project was the The Springfield Spectacle with our Partners the Double Edge Theatre.

September 23 & 24

Forest Park, Springfield, MA
Presented by City Mosaic

Directed by Stacy Klein
Created by the Double Edge Ensemble

Based on Double Edge’s Once a Blue Moon – Cada Luna Azul, this large-scale outdoor performance features the Double Edge Ensemble and renowned Argentine guest musicians Manuel Uriona (Bersuit Vergarabat) and Micaela Farias Gomez (Santadiabla), and will showcase youth performers from Springfield Conservatory of the Arts Public School.

The story follows a traveler who returns to his hometown after many years. Memories of his past and stories about the town’s colorful inhabitants evoke reflections about an increasingly universal theme: how progress can displace people. Inspired by Alejandro Jodorowski and other Latin American writers, the show is imbued with the excitement of a Latin American carnival, and draws upon memory, culture, and song.

The evening is free for all to attend thanks to the generous support of Premiere Sponsor Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company (MassMutual), as well as The Davis Foundation, Taylor Street Dental, C & S Wholesale Grocers, NAI Plotkin, The Springfield Central Cultural District, Tower Square, Metro Care of Springfield, and Inspired Marketing. Additional support for this event has been provided by the City of Springfield and the Expeditions Program of the New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA), made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional support from the six New England state arts agencies.
