“What I saw threw me for a loop, knocked me back, and took me down a peg, all at once. This was crazily inventive, beautifully adapted, serious, moody theatre. Not only did my 5 year old sit rapt for the entire 45 minutes, so did I —it was pure magic.”

Ruff is a 30-minute theatrical experience that takes place in a 10’x10′ tent, beginning and ending with a beach-themed play session.  The artistic adventure is told through puppetry, music, diorama, shadow-play, language exploration and a surprising amount of sand.  Ruff was created to specifically engage 0-5 year olds and their grown-ups.

Only A Day

Written by Martin Baltscheit
Directed by Jenny Anne Koppera

A fox and a wild boar can’t bring themselves to tell a dayfly that her life only lasts a single day. The three set out to complete a lifetime of accomplishments before the sun sets. A stunning play with an inevitable ending, Only A Day is funny, sad, and thought-provoking. For all audiences.

More public performances in the Ypsi/Ann Arbor Area to be posted soon! Be on the lookout!


Spinning Dot is happy to announce that our next Artist In Residence will be Big Fire. Learn more about this remarkable performer…
