What is THIS? What is THAT? —-
THAT imagines the creation of the universe, THIS is about the people in it – their romantic sense of longing, loss, alienation and near miss….a cowboy sleeps under the stars, a family puts their child to sleep for the night, a crooner serenades his lover, a jazz pianist fantasizes while he plays. The vignettes morph from one scene to another— hand shadows inspired by the sculptures of Henry Moore dissolve into each scene.
THIS and THAT has postponed its premiere due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope to resume rehearsal at The Bushwick Starr in July 2021 and premiere in their 2021 season. The Bushwick Starr has been very gracious and accommodating to us during this difficult year.
We are excited to announce that THIS/THAT Puppet Show was awarded a 2020 Henson Foundation Workshop Grant.
