WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Welcome to a dark fairy tale for kids aged 9 to 90. It begins, as so many of these stories do, with a knock at the door. A young couple discovers a cardboard baby on their stoop. They grow to love the child, who is completely flat, as their own. Then someone or some thing takes away the baby to Flat World, a planar landscape populated by characters whimsical, sinister, and flat as pancakes. The couple, both ordinary and round, must enter this two-dimensional world to get their baby back. Can they rescue their adopted child and escape from a parallel universe in which there is up-and-down and side-to-side, but no way out? For Cankerblossom, director Dan Rothenberg has teamed up with cartoonist and pioneering puppeteer artist Beth Nixon, whose fantastical cardboard creations work alongside stop motion animation, video projection, live music, and Pig Iron's signature physical style to create this shadowy fairytale land. In the spirit of The Phantom Tollbooth and Spirited Away, Cankerblossom invites you into a hidden, magical world that once you enter has no intention of letting you leave.
