Hygienic Egg!

Leo by giselle
The Hygienic Egg is Sunday, March 10th, at 12:30, at the Hygienic Galleries.

Artists associated with the Dragon’s Egg will come together to create a promenade performance event
at the amazing Hygienic Galleries on Bank Street, in New London.

The prompt is Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, by TS Elliot, so, generally speaking, the theme is Cats!
There will be dance, theatre, music, puppetry, hooping, poetry, stories.
The show will be at 12:30 and should run about an hour.
For all ages, by donation.

It will be great fun!!
I hope to see you there!

Here is the program:
