3 Major Grants Support Sandglass Festival and Programming
Sandglass Theater is thrilled to announce that we have been awarded three major grants! This support from the NEA, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the Fresh Sound Foundation will help to fund the next Puppets in the Green Mountains Festival in September, as well as other programs in 2015.
Sandglass Theater is in collaboration with Teatro Luis Poma (El Salvador) to create a a provocative new production based on G.E. Lessing’s 18th Century play about religious and cultural intolerance.
The piece is scheduled to be completed and ready for touring by the end of 2015.
Sandglass' Artistic Director, Eric Bass, has recently been featured on the website HowlRound, an online center for the Theater Commons, with his latest essay.
In this essay, Bass explores some of the fundamental misconceptions about the role of the puppeteer in bringing life to a puppet.
