Nature for the Nation
Our current organizational focus is on a national (2017-18) tour of Nature, a unique profile of the friendship between Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau. Grounded in the story of their mutual passion for the natural world, this virtuosic production offers a perspective on their lives that is strikingly relevant. Nature is performed outdoors as a “walking play.” A professional ensemble of actors and musicians takes the audience on a journey through the natural environment as scenes unfold around them. Bagpipes, ancient flutes, drums and rich choral arrangements are intricately woven into this theatrical experience. A community chorus guides the audience and enhances the show’s visual elements.
Outdoor theater has been TLA’s primary focus for fifteen years, and the professionalism and artistry of this piece are the very highest. We have learned through past productions how to work with nature’s elements to create an extraordinary experience for our audiences.
What goes into the exciting enterprise of creating and touring an original outdoor production? Countless hours of creativity and hard work! We are always in need of helpful volunteers and in-kind donations. Tours are also costly, and we appreciate your support in bringing Nature to the Nation. A detailed budget is available upon request. TigerLion Arts is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit production company, and your gifts are tax-deductible. We sincerely thank you for your consideration and generosity!
