Silencio Blanco’s silent, colorless puppets are charged with capturing humanity and giving voice to the voiceless. Returning to The Clarice after a moving creation residency and sold-out performances in 2017, this deeply empathetic company presents Pescador, an intimate experience that is dedicated to the lives of Chilean fishermen who face nature’s overwhelming magnificence while navigating a lonely existence to support those they love. In this most transparent of installations, the tender manipulation of the austere puppets crafts a narrative that allows us to view the beauty and struggle of a fisherman’s labor.

Silencio Blanco explores voice through the power of silence in a world where corporate greed feeds corruption. A young man is thrown out of the coal pit where he works, and in a precarious attempt to protect his livelihood and support his family, takes on a new job in the infamously sinister mine El Chiflón del Diablo. Meanwhile, a community copes with this danger in its midst and the uncertainty it sparks in their every day lives. Performing in complete silence using minimalistic marionettes, puppetry ensemble Silencio Blanco spins a universal story of humanity in the face of hardship, highlighting those who are often forgotten behind sensational headlines.
Tickets: General Public $25, Student/Youth $10, NextLEVEL $20. Buy tickets here.
