Ithaca Crankie Cabaret

An innovative art form that incorporates visual art, music, puppetry and story-telling! Come see the crankie - a small wooden theater with a scrollable story. A crankie is an old storytelling art form. It’s a long illustrated scroll that is wound onto two spools. The spools are loaded into a box which has a viewing screen. The scroll is hand-cranked while the story is told. It can be accompanied by a narrative, song or tune. This is the 1st annual cabaret, featuring local artists and musicians: Edith McCrea Kaleb Hunkele Christina Coleman LilySilly Puppets Matt Gordon Mickie Quinn Isaac Sharp Matt Ocone Mijaíl Martínez Tal Bill Hurley
