Sandglass' New Visions Puppetry Series Continues with OF BREAD AND PAPER, 10/11-12
Sandglass Theater's New Visions Puppetry Series continues on October 11-12 at 7:30pm with Company of Strangers' Finn Campman performing Of Bread and Paper. This evocative piece invites you to enter a world of light and shadow where layers of meaning are glimpsed and gradually revealed. Tickets are $16 general and $13 for students and seniors.
Of Bread and Paper is the story of a poor refuge trying to find his way home. His exile is self imposed but enforced by the struggles of the world: poverty, conflict, indecision, and love. It is a play made of fairytales and shadows and like One Thousand and One Nights the story unfolds within itself revealing layers of narrative. A storyteller tells of a paper man who has nothing but a small round of bread. As he seeks his fortune, he is confronted by a dream that seems to unfold his future, a future that holds his true love, a child, and the need to return home. As he is released from the dream he finds himself confronted with the ghost of his future in the form of the storyteller himself. The show is played with paper figures, light and shadows.
