unnamed-1Saturday, November 5, 2016 in San Rafael, beginning and ending at the Albert J. Boro Community Center, 50 Canal Street, Antenna Theater brings back its large-scale, skeleton puppets, masks and costumes to dance and play in the Dia de los Muertos Parade.

Events at the Community Center begin at 4 pm and continue until 9 pm.  The parade begins at dark and volunteers from the Center, as well as Friends of Antenna, will don the original, sculptural outfits created by Chris Hardman.

Other events will include Aztec and Mayan dance and music performances, colorful Altars to Ancestors, and traditional foods and beverages.

Antenna Theater moved its entire nonprofit operation to a new location in San Rafael this past year and proudly joins its new community in this very special, local event.

Antenna, formerly of Sausalito, is a 35 year old nonprofit corporation.  Its ongoing theatrical production, MAGIC BUS, is performed aboard a time-travelling, multi-media bus in San Francisco as it moves through the city to tell the story of the Summer of Love.  Antenna also creates the ECOlogical Calendar annually which connects people to the natural world.  In 2017, Antenna will be creating and participating in events centering around the 50th Anniversary of the Summer of Love.  More information about Antenna is available on-line:

Chris Hardman’s Story for the Season:The ancestors are back!I was talking to Sparky, my long-dead dog friend (1815 to 1827) and he was telling me about just how many ancestors there are roaming around – miles and miles as far as the imagination can see, and talk, talk, talk. The famous ones complain about the history books – ” I never said that!” and the rest just talk about family and friends and how they just worried about everything, everyday and then —-they died.But why does Sparky call me every year about this time?’Cause he knows I’m going to answer the phone. He knows I’ve seen the leaves fall from the trees and I’m seeing myself gradually falling from the Tree of Life too.Yes, about now, we take some time to think of these fallen ancestors because we are going to someday become the ancestors of those that will be following us.

Chris Hardman’s Story for the Season:

The ancestors are back!

I was talking to Sparky, my long-dead dog friend (1815 to 1827) and he was telling me about just how many ancestors there are roaming around – miles and miles as far as the imagination can see, and talk, talk, talk. The famous ones complain about the history books – ” I never said that!” and the rest just talk about family and friends and how they just worried about everything, everyday and then —-they died.

But why does Sparky call me every year about this time?

‘Cause he knows I’m going to answer the phone. He knows I’ve seen the leaves fall from the trees and I’m seeing myself gradually falling from the Tree of Life too.

Yes, about now, we take some time to think of these fallen ancestors because we are going to someday become the ancestors of those that will be following us.
