A huge thanks to everyone who made this year's festival a tremendous success! We had record numbers of audience turn out and a wonderful response to our festival's new format which combined world class puppetry with engaging dialogues on social justice. More Here
Sandglass Theater is in collaboration with Teatro Luis Poma (El Salvador) to produce a provocative new piece based upon G.E. Lessing’s 18th-century play about religious and cultural intolerance. Directed by Eric Bass and Roberto Salomon; puppets and set design by Ines Zeller Bass; set paintings by Jana Zeller; music by Scott Ainslie. Natan el Sabio was performed in August 2015 in San Salvador.
Sandglass' Artistic Director, Eric Bass, was featured on the website HowlRound, an online center for the Theater Commons, with his latest essay.
In this piece, Bass explores some of the fundamental misconceptions about the role of the puppeteer in bringing life to a puppet.
