The Funky Jazz Guy
Like the pied piper, giant puppets lead the people of Halifax to a family dance.
The Funky Jazz Guy has many pseudonyms. He was first created to represent Prospero in Shakespeare’s Tempest. He also plays the Poor Old Man who sleeps in a park because he has no home, and lives off the things he finds. He soon will incarnate into a pirate.
Painted by children ages 6-8 in a workshop led by Monika Wildemann at the Ross Creek Centre for the Arts. The giant saxophone created from recycled Styrofoam and papermache was recently given a shiny new paint job at South Shore Waldorf School's Summer Arts Program.
