The Puppets Are Coming!


The 2013 La MaMa Puppet Series takes over all three theatres at LaMaMa beginning this week with Roman Paska's ECHO IN CAMERA, Les Sages Fous' THE ORPHAN CIRCUS and Jeanette Oi-Suk Yew's ARE THEY EDIBLE? 

-----


ECHO IN CAMERA

Luminary theatre artist Roman Paska returns to the New York stage with the premiere of Echo in Camera, exploring the relationships between hearing, understanding and identity in a “little mental drama” that recasts the Orpheus legend as the journey of a divided puppet protagonist through the netherworld of his own imagination to retrieve a missing other.

Echo in Camera runs November 8 - 17th at the Ellen Stewart Theatre.
Tickets are $25 for adults and $20 for students and seniors.  A limited number of $10 tickets are available, in advance only, as part of La MaMa's 10 @ $10 ticketing initiative.

THE ORPHAN CIRCUS


In Les Sages Fous' The Orphan Circus, two junk peddlers create a small circus of visual tableaux evoking the life of a cabaret troupe of derelicts and misfits. This wayward troupe is ruled with an iron fist by the mysterious impresario Monsieur. P.T. Issimo. This is a place where the gruesome become the beauties and even impossible love can be fulfilled. 

The Orphan Circus runs November 7th - 10th at La MaMa's First Floor Theatre.  
Tickets are $18 for adults and $13 for students and seniors.  A limited number of $10 tickets are available, in advance only, as part of La MaMa's 10 @ $10 ticketing initiative.

ARE THEY EDIBLE?

Jeanette Oi-Suk Yew's Are They Edible?, a multi-sensory puppetry performance inspired by Homer’s epics, The Iliad and the Odyssey, takes place in an interactive setting where food consumption is used to engage the audience in a tactile discourse on the relationship between war, heroes, and hunger (or the urge to consume). 
Read our interview with Jeanette here.

Are They Edible? runs November 7th - 10th at The Club at La MaMa.
Tickets are $18 for adults and $13 for students and seniors.  A limited number of $10 tickets are available, in advance only, as part of La MaMa's 10 @ $10 ticketing initiative.
