WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Center continues its tradition of innovative puppet presentations with Blind Summit Theatre in The Table. Intended to be a theatrical interpretation of the story of Moses -- in real time -- The Table is performed by a grizzled, crotchety old man. But the grumpy puppet narrator strays far from the planned storyline and winds up playing out his own comedic, existential crisis as the puppeteers improvise and interact with each other and the audience. The show is done in the Bunraku style, with multiple puppeteers visible to the audience, and is performed completely on the table top. Blind Summit's puppeteers breathe poignant life into their characters and using humor and improvisation, show us something of ourselves in the cardboard, wood and fabric creations onstage.
