HOBT's new artist incubator PuppetLab is back, celebrating 6 years of radical, genre-expanding, boundary-pushing work thanks to generous support from the Jerome Foundation. |
In "Fulfillingness' Rebirth," Chamindika Wanduragala explores a side of motherhood that isnt often talked about. Her shadow puppet stop-motion animation moves from losing a sense of self and creativity to regaining it. The title plays homage to Stevie Wonders album Fulfillingness' First Finale.
Wanduragala is being mentored by Molly van Avery. Dameun Strange has composed music for the performance.
"Brothers" by Madeline Helling is the story of two brothers who take over their parents estate and discover that the demographics of their neighborhood are shifting. But they do not like change. In fact, they hate it. In an effort to maintain the comforts and uphold the liberties of their home, the brothers build a wall to keep the neighbors out. And nobody build walls better than they do.
Helling is being mentored by Maren Ward. Brothers features performances by Steve Ackerman and Olli Johnson.
