WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Based on the incomparable 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, which focuses on how one's vices can overtake them when faced with their wildest dreams and most overwhelming fears. The piece plays on a gigantic quilted screen, borrowing stylized movements and shapes from silent horror films, melodrama and Victorian silhouette; It uses lighting effects, costume, and natural materials, as well as traditional shadow puppetry to create a landscape unlike any other. The production features an original score by Vivian Fung, performed live by a chamber ensemble. Each perofrmance is followed by Drama of Works's smash-hit Halloween spooktacular, The Carnival of Samhain.
