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.
JUXTAPOSE will premiere at the 15th annual Capital Fringe Festival as part of their CURATED series at Arena Stage in the Kogod Cradle
July 8 - 19.
