and

MOBIUS presents: Ferrous City, by CAVE DOGS, December 7,8 and 9. The collaborative group Cave Dogs will present its latest work-in-progress of large-scale shadow projections and sound storytelling, Ferrous City, on December 7, 8 and 9th at Mobius, in Boston. In addition to evening performances, they are offering two matinees to encourage families to attend. Performances will take place on Dec. 7 at 8pm; Dec. 8 at 2pm and 8pm; and Dec. 9 at 2pm. Tickets are $12 for general admission and $10 for students, seniors and friends of Mobius. Mobius is located at 354 Congress St. Boston, MA, 02210. By Train: Red line to South Station, 2 blocks past the Children's Museum. For more information and reservations call Mobius at 627-542-7416.

Ferrous City is the story of a family car trip. During a quintessential summer in the city, too hot to stay indoors, a mother takes her children for a drive to their grandma's working farm, and along the way they encounter the Fast Talking Man; Sam, the juggler; a wedding cake; and a bunch of hogs that may change their final destination and how they get there. Ferrous City is about the dispersal of families from rural to urban homes and the struggle to maintain family ties. It celebrates the role the neighborhood, of strangers and friends, in the development of a child, and looks at what it means to be a mother in the twenty-first century. Reflecting on the car culture that dominates the lives of many families in the U.S., the narrative is conveyed through the window of the family station wagon. Along the journey, the characters experience the absurdity of everyday life and the extraordinary power of the ordinary. The story is about how we encourage the life of the mind through childhood play and adult daydreaming, and how these interior narratives shape our lives. Finally, Ferrous City is a story about storytelling: stories told in families, between siblings, and in communities.

Cave Dogs brings together visual artists, musicians, dancers, storytellers, and writers in the spirit of experimental collaboration. Performances consist of innovative, large-scale shadow projections cast onto a white screen from sculptures, props, costumes, and the human body. Using improvisational techniques, cast shadows move in concert with projected video imagery, spoken narrative, and an original soundtrack. The results are visual tableaus and effects that conjure both the dreamlike quality of early experimental film and the humor of contemporary animation. In this unique shadow medium, Cave Dogs tells life stories that charm, intrigue, challenge, and captivate adults and children alike. The text, visual imagery, and sounds weave together to create a rich multi-media artifact that documents, preserves, and celebrates important cultural voices and stories.

Cave Dogs members are Suzanne Stokes, Jeanne Scheper, James Fossett, Trudy Trutwin, Wayne Montecalvo, Judith Muldoon, Laura Moriarty, Kari Giordano, and Michael Crawley, with soundtrack by Dean Jones.

Suzanne Stokes, artistic director and performer, created Cave Dogs in 1992, while living in New York's Hudson Valley. Over the past ten years, the collaborative performance work has grown and developed and Cave Dogs sustains a healthy, long-distance, collaboration with members in Boston, the Hudson Valley, New York City, California and contributing artists throughout the United States.

Cave Dogs has created and performed works such as Ferrous City, How to Build a Raft, Emily's Circus, Sustenance, Fall of Perception, and Shadows of Doubt and Other Precarious Truths. Boston venues have included Mobius, Cambridge Multicultural Arts Center, The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston University and The Massachusetts College of Art. New York performances include P.S. 122, Henry Street Settlement/Abrons Art Center, HERE, The Woodstock Comeau Property, The Widow Jane Mine and SUNY New Paltz. They have received grants from The Jim Henson Foundation (NYC), The NLT Foundation (Boston, MA), and two consecutive years from Franklin Furnace (NYC).
