With a nod to Pirandello, SIX CHARACTERS explores the idea of family, reality versus illusion, and displacement. Featuring giant puppet figures,video and live music by Sxip Shirey and Jordan Morton, the evening is highlighted by guest appearances with Margaret Mead and Pirandello himself.
"These different dreams — animated by Skipitares and her team’s remarkable ability to turn puppets into picks mining poetic gold — allow us all to discover the six characters within each of us."
