Trunk Puppet
WHAT IS THAT STRANGE SCRATCHING SOUND?
Oh! That trunk is opening! Trunk Puppet by The Old Trout Puppet Workshop lifts the lid off the BIG BOX OF LIFE containing our creative spirit, pushing the
boundaries of how we experience puppetry. By releasing the
imposed control of the puppeteer, letting the puppet have a
life of its own, what wonders and mysteries, hilarity and
havoc will be unleashed? CAOS is proud to support the world
premiere of Trunk Puppet, a brand new work, co-produced
with Montreal's Festival de Casteliers. theoldtrouts.org

THE OLD TROUT PUPPET WORKSHOP (Calgary)
In the blustery winter of 1999, with the dreaded Y2K looming, a gang of childhood friends huddled on a southern Alberta ranch, seeking mutual protection in case of apocalypse. With the simple reasoning the world will always need puppetry even in the face of an economic and technological collapse they founded the Old Trout Puppet Workshop, and premiered to a bunkhouse full of cowboys and Hutterites.
Ever since those uncertain, savage days in the wilderness, the Old Trouts have toured the world with their puppets, written and illustrated books, crafted immense sculptures, taught eager young apprentices their secrets, and made films. The Old Trouts also form half of trance-blues band, Agnostic Mountain Gospel Choir. Next up (if the world doesn't end), a show in a Roman amphitheatre in Lyon, France.
