Drama of Works presents...

Sleepy Hollow

Based on the short story by Washington Irving
Original musical score by Vivian Fung
Directed by Gretchen Van Lente
Designed by James Walton

Performed by Deborah Beshaw, Amy Carrigan, Scott Weber, and Meghan Williams

The recorded score is performed by Paul Han, tenor; Meredith Lustig, soprano; Sean Riley, violin; Jonah Thomas, cello; Stephanie Wu, piano.

"Sleepy Hollow" is a Henson award-winning shadow puppet theater piece adapting the classic Washington Irving tale "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" (originally published in 1820). It is a 45-minute piece with original music incorporating voice, strings, piano and foley sound effects. A giant quilted screen covers the entire stage and all forms of shadow puppetry are employed to create this unique piece of theater: traditional shadow techniques, physical shadow acting, Victorian silhouette, silent film-esque title slides, dynamic lighting techniques and special shadow effects designed specifically for the show. It was developed as a part of the prestigious Dream Music Puppetry Program at HERE Arts Center as a part of their HARP residency program, under the guidance of Basil Twist, and with feedback from artists as diverse as performance artist Taylor Mac, playwright Lisa D'Amour and choreographer Alexandra Beller.

"Sleepy Hollow is elegant and effective, incorporating projected passages from Irving's text... The line of the projected figures effectively evokes nineteenth-century America even as the variety of techniques employed by Van Lente and her puppeteers marks the production as decidedly contemporary"  Performing Arts Journal
