Live Performances combining The Moving Body, Puppetry, Mask, Video, Dance, and Installation create compelling dramatic experiences for the audience. These ingredients serve as metaphors in performance so that audience members may relate their own experience to the objects and gestures presented by the performer. Puppetry, Dance, and Mask communicate that which cannot be described in words, and therefore are accessible to communities around the globe.
Dance reminds us that we are human. Mask hides the person, so that which craves exposure can be revealed. Puppetry allows a character to say anything, taboo or not, while often reminding us not to take ourselves too seriously.
With consideration of the multiple ingredients mentioned, the creation of art and performance occurs with the observation of nature. Nature is the source from which art is derived with love being the constant energy moving us forward with motivation and intention.
