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.
