Clouded Sulphur (death is a knot undone) is a multidisciplinary performance
work that merges puppetry, projection, text, and music to explore the emotional landscape of inexplicable loss. Developed in collaboration by Director/Designer/Filmmaker Janie Geiser, Playwright Erik Ehn, and Composer Valerie Opielski, Clouded Sulphur's elliptical narrative imagines the emotional space around absence. Created in response to the tragic, unsolved murder of a 15 year old Los Angeles girl, Clouded Sulphur navigates a complex terrain of family, loss, revenge, and unexpected hope.
Set at the edge of Los Angeles, where the untamed landscape meets the city, we center our project on absence, on cognition in the wild place, on the range of feelings that flow through brokenness (revenge, disbelief, unexpected floods of compassion and hope). Clouded Sulphur gives home to stories that are adrift. The figures move inexplicably between life and death, city and forest, as gravity and time are unmoored.
Clouded Sulphur (death is a knot undone) is a project of Automata, a Los Angeles based nonprofit organization dedicated to the development, creation, and presentation of experimental puppet performance, experimental film, and related forms.
