Vaudevisuals interview with Patti Bradshaw

fools in plein air: fermented rain

Inspired by folk tales and the natural world, fools in plein air: fermented rain employs puppets, objects, projections, movement, and six performers to dissolve the boundaries between mind/body and sleep/wakefulness. In this commission, Swiss writer Robert Walser walks through the dreamscapes of artist Marc Chagall, revealing human interconnectedness, the porousness of boundaries and the illusion of human dominance.

The Erdos Discrepency
by imnotlost
Theoretical math, abstract puppets, and a divine meditation on trust.
