Sandglass Theater’s new work Babylon requires that performers have skills in puppetry, movement, music and acting as well as an ability to resonate with the difficult subject matter and to mesh in an ensemble environment. When James Gelter stepped away from the project he left big shoes to fill and Sandglass is delighted to introduce Divymaan Sahoo who has been working with the ensemble to get up to speed for the upcoming November 4th performance at Landmark college and for touring beyond. We hope you have the opportunity to see this great work as it evolves and thank you to all who came with feedback from the work in progress showing. Babylon soon goes on tour to Landmark College, Raritan Valley Community College, Portland Ovations and The Flynn Center in Burlington, Vermont.
