Famous Puppet Death Scenes
Old Trout Puppet Workshop
Presented By: Theatre Junction + International Festival of Animated Objects
March 13 – March 28 @8PM (Sat. + Sun. Matinees @ 2 PM)
Why do we die? Is it necessary? What is eternity? Beneath the amusing antics of Famous Puppet Death Scenes churns a mature existentialism. Calgary’s Old Trout Puppet Workshop promises to cure your fear of death – no more anxiety about difficult choices, no more dreading birthdays, no more desperate pleas for immortality through fame, art, or progeny. Through a collection of death scenes culled from a (fictional) canon of famous puppet shows throughout history, The Old Trouts have created a snapshot of multiple stories that have the effect of viewing a painting in a gallery or finding an old photograph – the imagination of the audience is left to fill in the gaps.
A wickedly funny and oddly beautiful meditation on our final destiny, Famous Puppet Death Scenes will deconstruct your traumatized psyche and reconstruct you so that death means nothing to you anymore. For Tickets go to www.theatrejunction.com or call 403.205.2922
