Snow Queen

Saturday, October 15th, 2005

“Listen…” Hans Christian Andersen would say as he began his stories. His hands were busy creating fanciful images with paper and scissors, while children eagerly anticipated the unfolding.

Inspired by these intricate cuttings, Other Hand Productions puts paper creations in motion in this classic story. Using a unique form of puppet theater called Czech-Black, a curtain of light illuminates a world where puppets dance, float, and disappear.

Whatnot

Saturday, October 15th, 2005

Other Hand Productions presents a showcase of new pieces featuring puppetry, masks, movement theatre, dance, and music. Individual images, phrases, or situations inspire the pieces; a xylophone missing its eighth note, masks created from tape recorders, a dog that becomes a flowering tree. The performance premiers a collection of fascinating, funny, and sometimes poignant images that cannot be labeled or categorized but merely hinted at as Whatnot.

Pinocchio

Saturday, October 15th, 2005

Other Hand Productions’ original adaptation of Carlo Collodi’s Pinocchio will keep you guessing. Collodi first wrote Pinocchio as a serial piece, always writing the poor puppet into some misadventure that would encourage readers to find the next installment. In this original adaptation, writer and composer Jodi Eichelberger ventures into what might have been a later installment in Collodi’s series had he continued writing. What happened after Pinocchio became a real boy, and what does he remember about his early life as a puppet?
