Flint & Tinder Presents: The Curious Case of Phineas Gage


About the Show

A Vermont railroad worker in 1848, a veteran of the War in Afghanistan, and a band of mercenaries stationed on the water planet of the Cortica Galaxy... All faced with the same question: Who am I? An adventure of self-discovery through the inner space of the mind to the outer reaches of the universe by Split Knuckle, which returns to Flint & Tinder on the heels of its heralded 2010 presentation of Endurance.

About the series

Flint & Tinder is a curated series of innovative theater presented by The Tank in the heart of Manhattan's theater district. The series showcases ferociously talented emerging artists whose work spans (and often combines) physical theater, puppetry, dance, clowning, and more. They are the storytellers, risk takers, and theatrical alchemists that will shape the future of the medium.

Now in its second season, this year's Flint & Tinder (formerly Theater at The Tank) will feature performances from across the country and around the world: returning artists Kyle Loven (My Dear Lewis in 2010) and Split Knuckle Theatre (Endurance in 2010), as well as St. Ann's Puppet Lab artist Marta MacRostie, renowned clown performer Summer Shapiro, and the bouffant clown company La Piarra from Mexico City. Flint & Tinder is curated by Josh Luxenberg and Jon Levin of Sinking Ship Productions. Maggie Baker is the series coordinator.
