This is a great new puppet piece that I'm performing in at La MaMa this month. We're opening on March 24th, and the show runs through April 10th. Check out the La Mama website for tickets. The puppets are fun and weird and totally unique, and the projection design is beautiful! I'm so excited to be working with the amazing artists at Inkfish on this production!
The Digger: A Subterranean Allegory is a satire about the risks of mankind's technological obsession. Part man, part machine, The Digger is a new-world pioneer who strives to find the source of life hidden in an underworld dominated by greed, lust, fraud, and treachery. Facing otherworldly demons and those within, The Digger's search for meaning becomes a sacrificial journey that pushes him to transcend his earthly attachments. But will that sacrifice ultimately include the one he loves?
Inkfish is a collaborative, interdisciplinary puppet theater company that uses historical, literary, biographical and verbatim source material to create theater about contemporary social and political subjects for adult audiences. We believe that theater can not only hold a mirror to the audience allowing them to see their lives in previously unexplored detail, but may also open a window to a new world with its own set of rules.
