The Colonists is a lyrical visual fantasy, in which audiences are invited to enter the alien world of the bee. Developed in Bangkok by Nick Jones and Raja Azar, co-creators of the hit show Jollyship the Whiz-Bang, and developed through a Children's Show Grant by the Jim Henson Foundation, The Colonists tells the story of a forest community, overrun by a strange insect force they can't understand. Using electricified puppets, small-scale pyrotechnics and the music of Shooby Taylor the Human Horn, among others, The Colonists is a rite of spring to delight children and adults alike.
About the Company: Terrible Baby Theater Co
Terrible Baby Theater Co. was created in 2009 to answer all the eternal questions regarding human existence, and to support the collaborative theatrical work of Nick Jones, Rachel Shukert, and Peter James Cook. Terrible Baby is committed to being better than other theater companies and attracting as much press attention as possible. In their own right, each of the primary artists have become known for elaborate sophisticated comedy with subversive and quasi-historical inclinations, rooted in the traditions of Charles Ludlam, Joe Orton, and Jim Henson. Terrible Baby's inaugural season includes dual productions of The Colonists and The Nosemaker’s Apprentice, both at the Brick Theater, beginning in April.
