Through this season, we'll be developing an original piece asking "How do you retain your identity when your very survival is threatened?" The Peer Gynt Project will look at the already woven stories of imprisoned Norwegian artist Per Krohg and Henrik Ibsen's adventurous Peer Gynt to explore their longing for freedom and undeniable air of resistance.

We're collaborating again with the Czechoslovak American Marionette Theatre to help us create some of the magic of Peer’s adventures with the trolls and other mythical beasts. We'll be commissioning Kuba, their marionette carver in Prague, to create a marionette of the Troll King. (He already has a theme you probably know, Edvard Grieg's In the Hall of the Mountain King)

Thanks to the generosity of our Giving Tuesday supporters, Kuba will carve a new friend for Karkulka (seen in Raining Aluminum) and Marcus (who has appeared for four years in our production of The Burial at Thebes). Donors will get a special peek into the carving process and an invitation to his unveiling when he arrives from Prague this spring!
