Production History

Bird Machine  | Open: 06/18/09 Close: 07/05/09
Through workshops and support from The Jerome Foundation, The Jim Henson Foundation, St. Ann’s Puppet Lab, Workspace for Choreographers, Ensemble Studio Theatre/Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Science & Technology Project Commission, DCA, NYSCA, and chashama, Concrete Temple Theatre proudly presents its multimedia, multi-disciplinary allegory: Bird Machine.

Using a visceral mixture of object art and puppets -- from the creation of the play's environment/landscape, to flapping birds as rod puppets, to shadow and projection work -- Bird Machine is a play about technology, a contemporary fable that explores the desire to live beyond human limitations. Part one reveals: Leo, the dreamer, obsessed with flying; Vince, the realist, trying to control his world through miniaturization; and the Emperor, destroying Leo and his flying machine, out of fear that others will use the technology to destroy the city walls. In part two, Vince vindicates Leo’s murder by turning his miniature garden into a larger-than-life garden, to lure and trap the Emperor.

Audiences of Bird Machine will experience two worlds and two technologies. The beginning of piece depicts a world that is pastoral, the mechanics simple: a bird flaps across stage then soars overhead. As Vince dreams, his desk transforms into the city of the Emperor and the People. Part two, still a puppet- driven environment, uses projections to introduce contemporary technology.

Bird Machine is a co-creation of Renee Philippi and Carlo Adinolfi. Carlo Adinolfi designs sets and puppets; Renee Philippi directs. David Pinkard is composer and sound designer for the through-composed piece.
Renée Molina designs lights. Cast includes: Carlo Adinolfi, Ayako Dean, Jo Jo Hristova, Leat Klingman, Zdenko Slobodnik, Michael Tomlinson, and Stacey Weingarten.

THE BELLAGIO FOUNTAIN HAS BEEN KNOWN TO MAKE ME CRY  | Open: 12/10/14 Close: 12/13/14
Scratching lottery tickets and dreaming of fountains in Las Vegas, three Floridians indulge in fantastic plans of escape, while a minor problem unfolds: the ground is sinking beneath them. The Bellagio Fountain has been Known to Make Me Cry, intertwines two divergent narratives through classic visual performance art in an earnest object-theatre examination of relationships, family, and the environment. Pairing women and water as metaphors for one another, the play explores themes of conservation and regeneration, and at its heart, our eternal quest for happiness.

This is an In Process Showing.
