Eye of the Storm

Our new piece Eye of the Storm is a fairy tale about isolation and the difficulties of trying to stay connected. In a world that is so isolated it has no technology except a flushing toilet, a set of neighbors struggles to survive on a shrinking island. A silent woman is trying to reach her son, her loud neighbors are trying to make a dollar, and they all are trying to hang on as an increasingly heavy storm keeps shrinking the ground they live on. Told with rod puppets, hand puppets, shadows and original music we unfold a bizarre visual world using minimal language. This piece was developed in part at the O’Neill Puppetry Conference, with funding from the Jim Henson Foundation and a commission from Sandglass Theater funded through the NEA.
