Hear a whispered tale about an artist’s life while watching an intimate puppet show for just two people. Travel through the tunnel of shadows into a laboratory where you can wield your own lights and puppets, get inside a painting, or build your own city. Watch in wonder as dancers animate sculpture, puppeteers coax abstract art to life, and stories unfold into the light. 

Luminaries is an international collaboration between puppeteers and performers from Teatr Figur Krakow (Krakow, Poland), Sandglass Theater (Vermont, US), and Portland locals Summer Olsson and Katie McClenahan. 

Inspired by the Polish Avant Garde art movement, 1914-1939, this immersive theater performance uses images, shapes, colors, and ideas of the artists working during this period, to create something new. Audiences are invited to explore the work of Maria Jerema, Katarzyna Kobro, Wladyslaw Strzeminski, and others, in a broadly accessible way. Drawing on their extensive shadow puppetry experience, the creators of Luminariesbring joy and play to the artwork and stories from the past, and illuminate where we might go in the future. 

Dates: July 27 - 29, 2018

Times: Friday 7pm & 9pm, Saturday 2pm & 7pm, Sunday 2pm & 7pm

 Location: Shaking the Tree Theatre, 823 SE Grant St, Portland, OR 97214

Tickets: $20 Adults, $10 Children

Beady Little Eyes by Katie Mcclenahan - 1y ago

ONE NIGHT ONLY!  TICKETS HERE!

Holocene and local puppetry collective Beady Little Eyes present POP + PUPPETRY, an interdisciplinary extravaganza for the eyes and ears! 3 puppeteers of diverse styles (giant puppets, tiny puppets and shadow puppets, for example) will be paired with 3 inventive Portland-based pop groups. Each puppeteer will present an original puppet show created especially for this event and synced to the band’s music. The results should be dazzling, and help to elevate the experience of both artistic mediums when combined. We’ll also be screening puppet films between acts, directed and crafted by local artists.
