Talavera, Alex Hieronymus Bogs Literature- Poetry,
Music,
Performing Arts- Theater
Hieronymus Bogs is a one-man troupe whose artistic mission is to create and inspire. Bogs's imaginative approach to musical performance combines elements of poetry, theater, and the visual arts. Garbed in the attire of a traveling pilgrim (a metaphor for the creative journey), Bogs sings his original folk songs accompanied by his banjo, harmonica, bells and foot percussion. He interweaves his performances with short storytelling vignettes and recitations of William Blake, while incorporating simple props like a spool of red ribbon, or a bucket of river rocks to enhance the overall visual experience. His welcoming voice and emotive music are akin to artists like Woody Guthrie and George Harrison who often addressed themes overlooked by many entertainers. With songs like “The Infinite Possibilities of Universal Love” and “The Muse's Welcome,” Bogs's performances are thoughtful and engaging, encouraging viewers to realize the heights of their own creative potential.

At Mama Pajama’s Playhouse, our motto is “Rest Time Is The Best Time!” We believe that daily transitional time from the busyness of work and play is necessary for our bodies and minds to rest, recharge, and re-energize so that we can be our very best in the lives we lead. We use our live, interactive music and story shows, as well as our online concerts and story times to encourage and reinforce positive rest time perceptions to our audiences in a fun and entertaining way. This particular show is available in three formats - music only (entertainment-based), music only (entertainment + education), or as a story show, which uses both music and storytelling (entertainment = education). This show is primarily intended for children age 3-7, and of course their parents!
