“I do not know where this little story came from--out of the air, perhaps. One thing is certain, it is not written in any other book, nor is it to be found among the ancient lore of the East. And yet I have never felt as if it were my own. It was a gift, and it seemed to me as if I knew the Giver." —Henry Van Dyke
This holiday season, Dancing Sky Theatre is re-visiting one of our very first collective creations THE FOURTH WISEMAN, which is inspired by an 1895 novella by Henry Van Dyke. Many of us are familiar with the visit of the ‘three wise men’ as part of the Christmas story, and with the famous gifts that they brought. But what if there was a fourth wise man? One who started out on the journey but missed the nativity by three days and, as a result, spent the rest of his life searching for the promised King?
In this production, Dancing Sky Theatre explores what happens when things don’t go as planned, when we lose our way, and struggle through hardship and delays. This little story reminds us that despite setbacks, perhaps even because of them, we may be closer to our goals than we think. We have actually travelled further than we realize.
When we first explored this story 16 years ago, Cam Fuller of the Star Phoenix noted that it “looks through the meaning of Christmas and into the meaning of love.” It is a deceptively simple story that lets us reflect on the values that we all grapple with at this time of year.
It’s a tale that should be shared with the whole family. As always, we offer home cooked meals, theatre and hospitality to feed and engage the whole family. Make Christmas at DST a part of your festive tradition.
Dancing Sky Theatre is located in the village of Meacham, SK – just a 40 minute drive east of Saskatoon.
