A Toy Theatre Presentation
By Loco7 Puppet Theatre
Created & Performed by Sirovich Senior Center Members
This event is suitable for all audiences.
Nostalgia will reveal instances of love through stories based on imagined or remembered reality from members of Loco7's senior community. This presentation is made up of twelve unique short toy theatre pieces that the participants created around the theme of nostalgia and love. This is the first part in Loco7's exploration of love told from the perspective of youth, seniors and middle aged artists. This intergenerational exploration will continue with various presentations, online and in person through December 2021.
Studies in Puppet Form and Performance, conducted by Federico Restrepo, and in partnership with Sirovich Senior Center, introduced participants to the use of puppetry and storytelling. This creative process and development of work took place over a 3 month period through weekly online meetings.
FEATURING WORKS BY Piedad Dickinson, Nora Glikman, Maria Grande, Megan Haungs, Dolores La Guardia, Toby Levine, Jesse Marsh, Chuck Macdonald, Ruth Tobacco, Laura Anne Walker, and Margaret Yuen.
