COCA Presents Seedfolks

 

 

 

 

 

 

Seedfolks, a “spoken musical”, chronicles a diverse, immigrant community working together through struggles and triumphs. After a young Vietnamese girl plants beans in a vacant lot to connect with the memory of her father, she unintentionally creates a community garden which begins to bridge divides across her neighborhood. AGES 4+ 

RUN TIME: 50 MINUTES

“A community plot in a blighted urban neighborhood…not just vegetables, but hope, trust, camaraderie and a commitment to change.” —The New York Times

Get Directions

COCA has learned that the construction of the elevator in The Greeencubator’s unique new space will not be complete in time for Seedfolks performances. There is one flight of stairs leading to the performance, that may make the area inaccessible to some. If the lack of an elevator prevents you from attending Seedfolks at the Greencubator, we invite you to join us for our special SchoolTime performance at The Missouri Botanical Gardens on May 8, at 10am. Please contact the COCA Box Office (314.561.4877 or boxoffice@cocastl.org) to reserve a complimentary seat. COCA values accessibility, and we want everyone to be able to attend Seedfolks. Thanks for your understanding.
