At 8 pm — The Hour
Contemporary puppet, bilingual, 40 minutes.
The More of Everything Revival Hour is a work comprised of storytelling, puppetry, banjo music, humour and overhead projector magic that interweaves age-old legends of adventure and hubris with tongue-in-cheek commentary on contemporary society. This tragicomic, DIY, medieval-tech variety show touches on everything from the demigods of Mesopotamia, to disillusioned Facebook drones to the heights of Harper-Brand lunacy.
At 9:30 pm — Tout inclus sur la Planète Rouge
Shadow theatre, bilingual, 40 minutes.
All Inclusive on the Red Planet is a bilingual sci-fi shadow-puppet show telling an uncanny story of the first tourist mission to Mars. After unsafely landing, the astro-tourists must learn to survive on the inhospitable red planet, facing incredible odds like massive sand storms and mysterious attacks from unknown terrors. Using vivid technicolor video backdrops, hand puppets, live performers and featuring a psychedelic retro sci-fi soundtrack, this impressive mystical play owes much to the cinematographers and special effects masters of the sixties sci-fi genre films. True to retro science-inaccuracy, this story is just a little step ahead of today’s reality. All Inclusive on the Red Planet is a multi-media puppet journey exploring vast horrifying territories beyond any human imaginings!
