Ahoj from Prague!
Hello from the Czech Republic! I have spent June living Prague, conducting research on a new theater piece with puppets inspired by a classic Czech novel, Karel Čapek's The War With The Newts. The month has felt incredibly fruitful for both the script and the show's developing aesthetic, and included making this guy, the show's first newt, a hand-carved, wooden marionette, made in the traditional Czech style.
And the good news keeps coming! My show, Untold Stories From The War War With The Newts has just been awarded a 9 month residency at the Center at West Park, with a full length sharing set for next Spring in the Object Movement Festival. More the come as the show comes together over the coming months!
