JUXTAPOSE

A THEATRICAL COLLAGE IN ACTION

Using the manipulation of objects, puppetry, physical theatre, theatrical clown, and vintage spectacle, we will conjure portals to hope. This show will not follow a linear narrative, but will instead be a series of highly visual vignettes woven together by thematic threads inspired by the shadow boxes of Joseph Cornell, the films of Jean-Pierre Jeunet, nostalgia, ephemera, mass-extinction and the Anthropocene, discovery, creation, play, attachment and letting go. The piece is set in an imaginary tenement building that might be a hotel or a boarding house inhabited by eccentrics whose journeys, within the container of this dwelling, become art. 

 

"All of the role-juggling performers prove themselves to be adepts of the deadpan, the sidelong glance, the freeze and the pregnant pause."
