Strange Fruit - and Flowers!

The Sprout staff played hooky this afternoon and went to see the Australian performance group Strange Fruit at City Hall. It was amazing!! Aerialists? – gymnasts? – swaying on top of fiberglass poles to music, telling a story of love found, lost, and won.

Almost impossible to describe adequately, but so worth seeing! An amazing sight to see in downtown Worcester!!! And did I mention the performers say they were inspired by a field of wheat swaying in the wind?! Inspired by plants - imagine!

We tried to bring a little Sprout downtown as well, and handed out flowers to many of the onlookers. Thank you to the Hanover Theatre for bringing us Strange Fruit!

Wow - that looks like it was cool. I wish it had been done on a weekend day. I was at work and couldn't make it out :-(

Or an evning show would have been cool too. I believe they're out at MassMOCA in North Adams this weekend; bit of a drive though!
