Do Elephants Dream of Eclectic Sheep?

The audience is invited to visit the bedroom and mind of a slumbering elephant whose dreams are just beginning to unfold. The elephant begins to question her fate as the contents of her room and mind reveal messages either fraught with meaning or frivolous…or perhaps both…or neither? Time, scale, character transformation, creatures and objects will be awakened, unpacked, and opened to interpretation.
 
Created by Amanda Maddock and artists first in 2008 as part of the Bushwick Starr’s Bushwhack Series (Brooklyn, NY), the show features tabletop puppetry, shadow images, some object theater, and an original sound score. 
 
Performances:

Friday, February 20 @ 7:30pm
Saturday, February 21 @ 4:00pm
Saturday, February 21 @ 7:30pm

A residency at the MacDowell Colony in New Hampshire as well as a Jim Henson Foundation seed grant allowed for further development of the show in 2011, and that year it was presented at the PaTCH series for developing puppet works in New York City. This year, awarded a larger project grant from the Henson Foundation, Amanda is thrilled to bring Do Elephants Dream of Eclectic Sheep? to New England audiences as part of Sandglass Theater’s New Visions Series.
