The Happenstance Theater quintet is developing a Theatrical Collage inspired by the works of Joseph Cornell. Using the manipulation of objects, puppetry, physical theatre, theatrical clown, and vintage spectacle, we will conjure portals for the audience to engage their imaginations and build stories. It will not follow a linear narrative, but will instead be a series of highly visual vignettes woven together by a thematic thread and consistent historical aesthetic.

The piece will seek to unify the audience by illustrating our common humanity and reminding viewers of our universally shared condition, mortality. The hope is that through this theatrical journey, audiences might feel buoyed by the limitless possibilities of imagination.

Please note this is a NEW work-in-process that has only begun development right here at Joe’s on January 6th. The audience is invited to stay for talk-backs after all the performances to give the artists your candid (but loving) feedback. Performance is appropriate for families but not meant to be a “kids” show.

This performance is made possible by funding from the Maryland State Arts Council Maryland Touring Grant.

ATTENTION FAMILIES!
There will be a FREE hands-on puppet engagement activity at 11 am. Learn more about this most magical and memorable art form, create and play with puppets with Happenstance Theater’s master puppeteers.
