The Three Pigs & The Red Line

An Intersection of Toy Theatre & Artistic Activism

Directed by Aaron Snook, Adjunct Professor and Co-founder of American Myth Center

Virtual Performances - April 16 at 7 p.m. & April 18 at 2 p.m.
A live watch of pre-recorded content followed by a curated conversation with special guests from the community. Running time for the event is 90 minutes.

The Three Pigs and the Red Line is a family-friendly adaptation of the classic fable, "The Three Little Pigs," inspired by the history of redlining and urban renewal in Asheville's black community. Told through the magic of Toy Theatre, combining shadow puppetry, paper puppetry and crankies, the show aims to spark a conversation around our city's complicated history and how it continues to affect us all today.
