When an egg cracks open and a restless paper spirit emerges, what will it become? In this 30-minute tabletop puppetry piece, Julian Crouch and Saskia Lane team up to create extraordinary beauty from ordinary objects: crumpled brown paper, found objects, shadows and a mound of sand.
JULIAN CROUCH AND SASKIA LANE
World-renowned theater designer, director and puppet-maker Julian Crouch wowed audiences with Satyagraha at the Metropolitan Opera and the devilishly delightful Shockheaded Peter (1999) and Wolves in the Walls (2007) at The New Victory Theater. He is currently represented on Broadway with his Tony-nominated scenic design for Hedwig and the Angry Inch. The multi-talented Saskia Lane livened up the New Vic with Dan Zanes & Friends Holiday House Party (2008) and she also rocks with her band, The Lascivious Biddies. Together, Julian and Saskia team up to create their first project as duo puppeteers and performers.
BIRDHEART is a work in progress which was developed as part of the 2013-14 New Victory Labworks Artist Residency, with additional support from the St Anne's Warehouse Puppet Lab and the Henson Foundation. The fully realized production will be commissioned and produced by VisionIntoArt (VIA) for Original Music Workshop (OMW)'s opening season, Fall 2015.
