Ishi's Brain - With musical performance by Christian Cummings
Ishi's Brain is a show by Lisa Krause and Eamon Espey that incorporates shadow puppets, a marionette, masks and a liberal use of painted cardboard. It is based on a chapter in Eamon Espey's new graphic novel, Songs of the Abyss published by Secret Acres. The inspiration comes from the true story of a man that had been referred to as "the last wild Indian."  Krause and Espey's version turns the story into a science fiction ritual where a lone spirit spends his final days and an alien shaman helps guide the dead into the next world. Original soundtrack by Stephen Santillian of Baltimore bands Ghost Life and Thank You.

This evening's event will begin with a musical performance by Christian Cummings

Eamon Espey is a cartoonist based in Baltimore whose books include Wormdye (2008) and Songs of the Abyss (2012). Both were published by Secret Acres.  His work has appeared in art shows in such places as Los Angeles, Istanbul, and New York and in print in Sweden's Galago Magazine and Washington DC's Bash Magazine.

Lisa Krause is a trained sculptor and has been an Associate Artist with Black Cherry Puppet Theater since 2009. She has studied traditional marionette carving in the Czech Republic and recently just spent a month living and performing with the anarchist theater group, Bread and Puppet.  Krause facilitates puppetry workshops and has performed with Black Cherry at schools, recreation centers and community festivals across Maryland, Virginia and at the National Theater in Washington D.C.  She has also performed in the streets of Prague and the beautiful hillsides of Vermont.
