No 1 Chinese
Musician Patrick Breiner, Director Rowan Magee, and puppeteers Emmanuel Elpenord and Takemi Kitamura have been developing No 1 Chinese since 2015. There are more Chinese fast-food restaurants in America than Burger Kings, McDonalds and Wendy’s combined. Many undocumented men and women pay off high interest debts by working for years in Chinese restaurants around the country, earning a fraction of minimum wage. While we work on the stage, consider that someone with great ambition and resilience is cooking under fluorescents down the street. No 1 Chinese was the recipient of a 2016 Henson Workshop Grant.
As Fast or Faster
Catherine M. Chin
A crack in a wall is energy finding the fastest way out. Cracks and fractures wind, explore, and escape. They run into new places, struggle with outside forces, and turn the places they have left into new objects. Using both manual and digital means of live manipulation in tandem, the artists breathe life into shadows and fissures to tell the story of As Fast or Faster, a short visual poem about cracks in the material world and about the forces that become visible when the world is under stress.
The Healing Shipment Prologue
Maria CamiaGreetings, Galactic Neighbor! Come on board the Aricamian spaceship in ritual, song, and hyper speed. Starring Marikata and her crew, healers of the future. Witness the illusion of time and the unrelenting drive to transmute low vibrations back into their glorified state of magnificence.
Electric Eye Ensemble On Christmas Eve 1968 the astronauts of Apollo 8 took a picture of the Earth and changed the world. The photo gave humanity a new perspective on our planet’s fragility and isolation in the universe. But now, 49 years later, the image of Earthrise is unimpressive. Using puppetry, movement and design elements, this piece seeks to reawaken the sense of wonderment and hope that the photo initially inspired.
