ABOUT THE PRODUCTION
According To Coyote is one of five culturally-specific productions toured annually by Mixed Blood Theatre, a Minneapolis-based multicultural theater company. It is a collection of American Indian legends and stories filled with music, dance and magic.
The anthology of tales features the legendary hero of American Indian lore and is an unforgettable encounter with the richness, vitality, and sensibilities of Native culture.
Playwright John Kauffman employs age-old techniques of music, dance, magic and narrative to bring to life this brave/foolish/sneaky/wise character in all his guises – Coyote the Creator, the namer of animals and bringer of fire; Coyote the Trickster, conniving for an advantage that usually backfires on him; and Coyote the Teacher, from whom lessons of humility, wisdom and humanity are learned.
