Sandglass associate artists Jana Zeller and Kalob Martinez present two original hand puppet pieces at Main Street Arts in Saxton’s River
El Beto by Kalob Martinez is a one man, bilingual, hand puppet version of Shakespeare’s Macbeth and is set in the world of the Mexican drug cartel. While the US engages in the war on drugs another war is fought by the cartels in order to gain control of the US/Mexico border.
Kasper and Gretel
Jana Zeller will be presenting her adult Kasper and Gretel. This raucous hand puppet piece features traditional German hand puppet heroes Kasper and Gretel, as they struggle with the duties of a married couple inside an old shack. The action turns comical, tragic and grotesque as the two juggle the baby, their chores and making money, dream of a better future and hide a dangerous secret from each other.
