Travel with your quirky guide through the cosmos using what is at

hand to navigate worlds in this inventive DIY performance

about climate change with immersive shadows and video imagery.

Bricklayer mask by Michael Gunst

Stories will 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 performers will represent the workers of humanity. They will 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 10+. The scenes explore themes of humanity: migration, love, cruelty, humor, faith, poverty, hunger, work, generosity, isolation, joy, and companionship.
