directed by Gretchen Van Lente
Based on the tale by Washington Irving, and inspired by his sparse dialogue, lush imagery and vividly drawn mood, Sleepy Hollow is a large-scale shadow puppet re-telling of the classic story, featuring original live music written by Vivian Fung, which focuses on how one's vices can overtake them when faced with their wildest dreams and most overwhelming fears. The piece will play on a gigantic quilted screen, borrowing stylized movements and shapes from silent horror films, melodrama and Victorian silhouette; use lighting effects, costume, and natural materials, as well as traditional shadow puppetry to create a landscape unlike any other.
