I'll be performing two different shadow plays as part of Dlectricity this Friday, October 5 and Saturday,
October 6. The performances will be in the Prentis Court of the Detroit Institute of the Arts. Admission to the shows is free. Enter via John R, next to the Detroit Film Theater.
Friday, October 5 at 8pm and Saturday, 6 at 10pm I will be performing 'Mama Three Eyes' a shadow play about the Hindu Goddess Kali. Viewers will witness Kali's creation of the universe, a battle with demons and the dawn of time, and her intervention in a modern day space invasion.
'Yaga Baba' will be performed Saturday, October 6 at 8pm. Based on a Russian fairy tale, a little girl is left alone to baby-sit her little brother. She must travel to the middle of the woods and rescue him when he is kidnapped by Yaga the witch and her pet crows.
The puppets will be performed live to a pre-recorded soundtrack featuring original music by Dan Tower and narration by Sonja B.C.
Big Rusty Nails to Mary Fortuna and Paint Creek Center for the Arts for hooking me up with this gig. Also major props to Carrie Morris and Larry Baranski at the DIA, Alivia Zivich and the other members of the Dlectricity staff for all their support.
I'm super psyched to be performing in this show, the first live puppet show I ever saw was at the DIA (Punch and Judy, I was 5 and laughed my ass off). The show is free, in the DIA auditorium, near the old cafe. Dan Tower is jamming live while I rock two light projectors. Hope to see you there.
