This weekend in Shoreline, the Cabiri’s Tarhun brings to life the epic tale of a Hittite lightning god through aerial acrobatics, giant puppets, and contemporary dance.

A mythological exploration of the rites of kingship, the tale follows the storm lord Tarhun, the solar goddess Arinna, and the huntress Inara as they fight to save humanity from the black magic of the elder god Kumarbi and a host of primeval monsters.

See it all for 3 nights only at the Shorecrest Performing Arts Center:
  • Thursday, March 31, 7pm
  • Friday, April 1, 7pm
  • Saturday, April 2, 7pm
Tickets are $25 and available at Brown Paper Tickets.

Much of the spectacular aerial dance choreography using hoops, silks, and other apparatus in Tarhun was created by the troupe’s Montreal-based coach Sam Alvarez (Cirque du Soleil, Odysseo).

Alvarez has performed and coached aerial arts, dance and acrobatics for over twenty years and is also the aerial choreographer for Cavalia: Odysseo, currently touring North America.

Each of the handmade puppets created by the Cabiri’s design team, each creature has three puppeteers inside. The music is an original composition by Vasilis Fotopoulos.

Tarhun is suggested for audience members 10 and older. The Shorecrest performing arts center is located on the Shorecrest campus at 15343 25th Ave NE, Shoreline 98155.
