Michael Gunst in MOMENT in TIME
Stories unfold as if emerging out of a black and white photo. Dressed in work clothes, with make-up on their hands and faces to blend in with the predominantly black and white figures, the two actors represent the workers of humanity. They set the stage, manipulate puppets, objects, and shadows, and play roles with or without masks in this non-verbal show for adults and children age 13+.
Inspired by real-life situations captured in black and white photographs,
this performance paints an evocative portrait of the human condition.
