Squonk • Hand to Hand

Join us for three free performances of Hand to Hand by Squonk as we officially open the Koger Center for the Arts Plaza Stage, on September 25 at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. and September 26 at 6 p.m.

Hand to Hand is propelled by two giant puppet hands, each the size of a house and rigged like a sailing ship, and music that blows the roof off. The Squonkers, dwarfed by the hands, climb a multi-tiered stage. Music rises from a single finger flicking an organ key, as natural an expression of humanity as a wave or a fist. Squonk’s original progressive rock drives a journey that is spectacular, plaintive, and comic. Audience members come together to grab the rigging, each individual powering a larger movement of giant fingers, a web of connections, a single dance.
