The Wolf Crystal project began in October 2018 as an idea. We knew we wanted to introduce kinetic and interactive art into the Festival, but we didn’t know how. So about 15 of the most creative people in our region came together to figure it out, and “The Wolf Crystal” was born.
“The Wolf Crystal” is a work of immersive theater. It is a story rooted in Abingdon’s traditions and legends about the wolf caves and Daniel Boone’s explorations through our region. The story unfolds over the course of the Festival dates, with new elements being introduced each day.
It is told with puppets, dance, and spectacle. It is told with the help of children and families, who are encouraged to explore Abingdon and Festival events to help our hero find the missing crystal. And it is told with a large work of interactive sculpture that is visible from many parts of town.
All Wolf Crystal programs are free and open to the public, but to really immerse yourself in this experience, you’ll want to sign up on our app, Alert Abingdon, at [link coming soon]
You’ll get daily alerts from July 25-August 2 so you’ll know where to hunt for the Crystal next. This will also give you access to our animated video of the adventure, so you can follow along even if you’re not in Abingdon.
