Golden-era Broadway musical grandeur, with dancing puppets, funk and Bollywood: In the biggest love story since “Titanic,” a bear grooves in outer space.

At previous editions of the Summer Festival in 2014 and 2017, Josh “Socalled” Dolgin’s THE SEASON puppet musicals centering on a group of forest-animals and their contact with extra-terrestrial Fuzzie creatures not only sold out, they brought tremendous joy to Kampnagel audiences of all ages. Produced by the Summer Festival, SPACE – THE 3RD SEASON, is the third SEASON-musical by the Canadian composer, rapper, magician, cartoonist, filmmaker and puppet-builder. In SPACE, bear and his semi-extraterrestrial daughter Tami travel to a far-flung planet in search of Tami’s mother Tina. The planet is ruled by a colonial queen who has separated all Fuzzie beings by the colors of their fur and their singing voices in a kind of apartheid. The queen is performed and sung by Indian-Canadian Juno Award-winning Kiran Ahluwalia, who is joined on stage by Socalled and a 20-person team that includes Hollywood actor Joe Cobden, Montréal puppeteers, underground NYC rapper C-Rayz Walz and Hamburg’s Kaiser Quartett among others. Together, they create a deeply entertaining musical that effortlessly combines Bollywood, funk, hip-hop and Broadway classics, and gets the puppets dancing.
