Bradley Kemp - Event Producer and Puppet Artist
Patrick Keppel - Librettist and Co-director
While vocalists perform Keppel's haunting text, puppets act as silent, spiritual incarnations of the story's dream-like metaphors, woven together by Kemp's richly layered improvisatory soundscape. On the centennial of the tragic Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire, Triangle is really about the present and thus engages the audience directly. Somewhere these people are still trapped just as they were in Bangladeshi in December 2010 (see http://www.cleanclothes.org/news/2010-12-14-bangladeshi-factory-fire). How do we understand the system that continues to enforce these tactics? In this sense, the play makes a clear and hopeful call for compassion, courage, and community action, creating an empathetic entry point to understanding the individual inside the system.
