Heart of the Beast show tells the story of monk/activist Thich Nhat Hanh

In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre will open its latest project, “A Path Home: A Story of Thich Nhat Hanh,” on Friday. The work explores the life and work of Thich Nhat Hanh, a Vietnamese monk, poet and peace activist. The Buddhist monk was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1967, after playing a central role in the Vietnamese peace movement. He is a founder of Engaged Buddhism.

Masanari Kawahara, a master puppeteer who has worked with the company since 1998, brings the story to life. His past collaborate efforts include “GOTAMA: Journey to the Buddha” and “Beneath the Surface.”

“A Path Home: A Story of Thich Nhat Hanh” runs Friday, Nov. 6, through Nov. 22 at In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre, 1500 E. Lake St., Minneapolis. Tickets are $12 and $17. For information and tickets, call 612-721-2535 or visit online.
