Theodora Skipitares

Theodora Skipitares' newest work, SIX CHARACTERS (A Family Album) premiers at the Ellen Stewart Theatre - March 31 - April 16, 2016.  With a nod to Pirandello, SIX CHARACTERS explores the idea of family, reality versus illusion, and displacement.  Featuring giant puppet figures,video and live music by Sxip Shirey and Jordan Morton, the evening is highlighted by guest appearances with Margaret Mead and Pirandello himself.  

We decided to take a look back at some of the hugely creative body of work created by Theodora over her long career.
