Once There Were Six Seasons
by Glass Half Full Theatre
May. 22 - Jun. 07, 2014
An exploration of the impacts people have on their environment, and environments on their people (and animals).
Once There Were Six Seasons was first presented in Spring of 2013 as a workshop production, and is slated for a full production in 2014. Six Seasons is a new work that uses puppetry and physical theatre to addresses the impact of climate change on traditional farming societies around the world. This project shows, through puppetry, narrative and imagery, how farming systems used for hundreds of years across the globe have been drastically affected by the rapidly changing global climate, and how communities and families are undone when their cultures are irrevocably altered by these external environmental changes.
Tiny puppet figures exist in vast spaces onstage, and visible puppeteers move the figures through a changing environmental landscape. Emphasis is placed on the shifting landscapes around the puppets, and on the puppeteers' role as the "cause" of those changes. There is lots of sand and water.
