How a river caries you
a solo piece using object puppetry
This piece explores a sense of departure though minimalist puppetry. A canvas stands on an easel. A whale visits the canvas. The whale floats like a house. Originally developed as a solo piece for Puppet Blok 2017 at Dixon Place, NY, the project continues to focus on the process of how a consciousness forms from pre-verbal to verbal stage.
