CARNIVAL OF SAMHAIN

Genre: Festival

Drama of Works will once again extend the Halloween holiday, terrorizing unsuspecting New Yorkers. The majority of pieces will be puppet pieces (with an emphasis placed on variety), as well as dance, scene work, circus and live music.

SOME POSSIBLE ACTS: Drama of Works' Artistic Director Gretchen Van Lente and Artistic Associate John Ardolino present a piece from their newly formed children's theatre, 2 Punks Puppet Theatre. A piece for older kids, it's a dark, moody retelling of Poe's The Raven using three overhead projectors and virtuoso acting. Liz Joyce (recipient, with Steve Widerman, of an UNIMA Citation of Excellence) will reprise a classic toy theater retelling of her own Poe tale. A life-sized heart, eyeball and other oddities enact his classic, A Tell Tale Heart, in miniature. Nasty Canasta brings humor and a bit of whimsy to the festival with her Mummy's Curves. She and partner Johnny Porkpie's burlesque/hand puppet piece bring a spirit of the peepshow to this year's Carnival. Some of Jody Sperling's (Time Lapse Dance) dancers will bring Jody's signature contortions to the festival once again this year.

Also on the tentative roster are a solo marionette work by Sarah Frechette, puppets by Ken Berman and Dramaton Theater, the comedic puppet stylings of Evan Laurence, dance by Angie Harriell and much much more!!!

Hosted for the third year in a row with puppets and song by the fabulous Bone Daddy Jonnyclockworks!!!
