Panther and Crane is a mesmerizing, expressionistic journey through our Earth’s waterways. Soaring puppets, beautiful projections, and fluid movement envelope you in a universe of mythical imagery and dreamlike metaphor.


Delve into the world of migrating cranes and pacing panthers as they dance through challenges threatening their way of life.

Panther and Crane is, at its heart, the story of a young crane’s journey of survival through Florida’s ecosystem — its wild places and its sprawling man-made landscapes.


Through puppetry, dance, and kites sailing above the stage and the audience, Panther and Crane shares how human development endangers cranes, and how their technology helps bring the birds back from the brink of extinction.
