La MaMa Puppet Series: Week 2

The La MaMa Puppet Series, curated by Denise Greber, continues this week with THE GOD PROJEKT, ECHO IN CAMERA and LA MAMA PUPPET SLAM, as well as Kids programming: GOLDILOCKS & THE THREE BEARS, THE THREE LITTLE PIGS and SQUIRREL STOLE MY UNDERPANTS!
 --- 


THE GOD PROJEKT

Created by Lone Wolf Tribe, conceived by Kevin Augustine, written & directed by Kevin Augustine and Edward Einhorn, in association with Untitled Theater Company #61.

The God Projekt is an interdisciplinary, minimalist extravaganza on religious and secular morality that investigates the historical legacy of monotheism. God (played by Augustine in a full-body “old age” silicone prosthetic) joins a cast of highly realistic, hand-carved puppets inspired by 18th century wax anatomical figures and Old Testament animals and characters to deliver a dynamic interpretation of a deep, contradictory, and ambiguous Almighty.

ECHO IN CAMERA

Conceived, designed and directed by Roman Paska

Echo in Camera, a co-production of Dead Puppet, the Schauspielhaus Wien and the Grand Théâtre de Luxembourg, explores the relationships between hearing, understanding and identity in a “little mental drama” that recasts the Orpheus legend as an interior journey, tracing the descent of a divided puppet protagonist through a netherworld of his own imagination to retrieve a missing other.
