Evolve Puppets' Home

  • The Tank 312 West 36th Street, 1st Floor New York United States (map)

$20 General Admission

Evolve Puppets’ HOME is a play that fuses puppetry, theatre and multimedia into a visually thrilling and emotionally moving story of a woman’s connection to the universe.  Alice is an archaeologist, mother and scholar at the final crossroads of her life.  A visit from an intimidating guardian angel (and his strangely familiar young companion) sends Alice on a trip through time and memory, digging through the layers of the past, unearthing her life with her brilliant but troubled husband and their young daughter, and her years studying the people of Pompeii, frozen forever in their last moments on Earth.  HOME uses live actors alongside lifelike full-figure puppets inspired by Japanese bunraku techniques, shadow play, state-of-the-art digital projections and more to tell Alice’s story through the very contents of her home.  Photos become animate; plush toys and dolls come to life; clouds of dust form into moving images, singing in the voices of ancestors; furniture travels around the space, opening up to reveal dynamic museum-style dioramas of the past.  HOME is a play for adults, appropriate for audience members age 12 and up.
