Austin’s edgiest and most-sophisticated festival, Fusebox is also the most indie.
And it’s free.
Some Fusebox events do require prior reservations. But in this blog we’re highlighting a few choice happenings that require no reservations.
“The Biodiversity of Texas”
When: 1 p.m.Saturday
Where: Fiesta Gardens Pavilion, Town Lake Park, 2101 Jesse E. Segovia St.
Whimsical live art meets science education in this family-friendly, one-hour live show, a project by Austin artist Jules Buck Jones and Animal Facts Club, a collective of artists and scientists.
Think of “The Biodiversity of Texas” as an artist-made nature diorama, live and large-scale.
Imaginative puppets, costumed performers, vividly illustrated backdrops, sound effects and a narrator combine in a live nature diorama show highlighting the wildlife and ecology of Texas. Journey through five Texas ecosystems and 100 million years of Lone Star State natural history.[vimeo 143531680 w=500 h=281]
