Diwali Candles


In November, Emma and Finn will perform with Momenta in The Flowering Tree. The Indian story tells of a poor young girl who has the magical ability to transform into a tree and sell her blossoms at the palace to care for an ill relative. Emma is playing the hot spice, Cumin and Finn is going to be an elephant complete with plungers as feet!
Momenta always puts on a beautiful show with a creative home spun edge and the fall show will be no exception. Today I helped the production along by making dozens and dozens and dozens of Diwali candles out of battery operated votive candles and disassembled Hawaiian Leis. They really are quite lovely. The tips of my fingers, however, are not. Anytime I use a glue gun I end up wounded, but the show must go on!
