scroll Optical Popsicle Seven
OCTOBER 11   8PM   THE TOBY
INDIANAPOLIS MUSEUM OF ART


Optical Popsicle is a zany variety show unlike anything you've ever seen before. A mish-mash of puppets, video, live music, and dance come together for one unpredictable night of whimsy.

The show features the assorted imaginations of Know No Stranger members as well as the faraway talents of performance artists and videographers from across the Midwest. Annually, KNS and Co. bring creativity, whimsy, and good old-fashioned resourcefulness together to create a series of skits, musical acts, and performance art pieces, each designed to dazzle and engage the audience.

"Know No Stranger captures the primordial impulse to create and share and thus connect with humans with everything they do, from announcing audience members as they enter the auditorium to making everything out of cardboard, duct-tape, overhead projectors and a can-do spirit that’s endearing, infectious and hilarious."

— Jim Poyser, NUVO
