Margery Williams' The Velveteen Rabbit or How Toys Become Real was first published in 1922, a time when such a companion as a stuffed rabbit could easily serve as a boy's greatest treasure, and when the threat of scarlet fever was real and close to home. Celebrating over 25 years of performing The Velveteen Rabbit, Oberlin Dance Collective (founded in 1971 as a collective of artists at Oberlin College in Ohio) continues to perfect and master this Bay Area holiday tradition.
