Overture Center’s Kids in the Rotunda is a series of free artistic programs designed for children and families which runs from the last weekend in September through April. This popular performing arts series on the Rotunda Stage offers a relaxed, kid-friendly environment in which to enjoy a diverse lineup of local and regional musicians, storytellers, jugglers, theater troupes, magicians and dancers. The programs run every Saturday at 9:30 am, 11 am and 1 pm (each performance lasts around 45 minutes). The 1 pm performances are sign language interpreted.
This week’s performer is The Handphibians (Brazilian rhythms & songs)
“The Handphibians lay out samba-style rhythms in live performances that are guaranteed to get the whole family moving to the beat. Led by Robert Schoville, this Madison-based percussion group is a favorite at festivals and parades. Handphibian percussion is modeled on Brazilian baterias and based primarily on the Escolas de Samba, the Samba Schools of Brazil. Come experience the exhilaration of this musical form with the Handphibians!”
There will be no Kids in the Rotunda next weekend, Saturday, November 20th.
