About this show

Dead Puppet Talk conjures a hypnotic world where puppet performers silently act out scenes from a "play within a play" as actors wryly speculate on the puppets' raison d'etre. This "talking opera" marks Roman Paska's return to New York after four years as Director of the International Institute of Puppetry, the world's foremost center for puppet theater. Developed at the 2004 Sundance Theatre Laboratory at White Oak, it features the director's signature blend of elegant puppets inspired by anatomical dolls and artists' mannequins, film interludes, and a score of electro-acoutically altered blues and traditional music mixed live at each performance.
