Inspired by the Bulgarian proverb "The smallest pebble can upset even the largest cart," the Pebble-and-Cart Cycle: one-line tragedies unveils a spellbinding, surreal journey where folk legend, animal archetype, personal experience and religious rite weave together to expose the theater of inner conflict. A woman battles a fly.  Father has a horse attack.  Brother turns into a goat. This installment features the first three parts of the six-part cycle -- "Moocha: I have a fly on my plate," "Horse: I have my heart in front of me" and "Goat: I cannot get into my own shoe" -- each of which developed uniquely through the group's Kinetic Mind Practice. Conceived and directed by Polina Klimovitskaya (Red Beads, Mabou Mines) with puppets by Jessica Scott (Basil Twist & Mabou Mines) and video by Melissa Clarke.
