ArtYard is pleased to present a unique and wonderful event, the Banners and Cranks Festival, November 17th, 18th, and 19th. Banners and Cranks represents the reinvention, pioneered in large part by Vermont’s Bread and Puppet Theatre, of the pre-cinema narrative technique of Cantastoria, in which spoken or sung stories accompany moving images painted on banners or scrolls. It is uniquely suited to ArtYard’s mission of fostering artistic collaboration between visual artists, musicians, poets and random humans of varying stripe. The festival will feature the work of ten artists from local and far-flung regions of the U.S.
