Searls Puppetry is proud to present Basura! Award-winning puppetry director
Colette Searls brings these disposable creatures to FringeNYC for their New York premier.
A magical resurrection of trash! Discarded paper, plastic bags and wads of packing tape transform with lyrical beauty and hilarious physical comedy. A trio of silent humans, trapped in a sea of debris, discover how to morph their surroundings into passionate humanoid creatures. Newspapers start tap-dancing and tape-people struggle to seduce without sticking. Eclectic music rounds out this surreal awakening of the ordinary.
Basura! is a 40-minute play with no spoken words. This is puppetry for adults, but the material is suitable for all ages.
