About this show

Once upon a time there lived...'a king!' my little readers will say immediately. No children, you are mistaken. Once upon a time there lived a piece of wood. -- Carlo Collodi, The Adventures of Pinocchio Witness Pinocchio's dramatic escape from the belly of the asthmatic shark! Listen in astonishment as the beautiful blue child with the blue hair lectures him on his questionable life choices! Gaze in amazement upon the wonders of the Island of Crazy Sweet Candy Chaos! Immediate Medium's psychedelic re-imagining of Collodi's original 1883 text is definitely not your grandmother's Pinocchio. A mashup of original music, projections, live video compositing, masks, found objects and Italianate gibberish, The Assassins Chase Pinocchio fractures the storytelling tradition into an immersive multimedia experience for all. Appropriate for children ages 4, 24, 34 and 104. (And those in between.)
