The Head: A Trouble Puppet Show
Salvage Vanguard Theater
Austin , TX
Share this event:

Trouble Puppet Theater Co. presents The Head, a darkly hilarious original work of puppet theater for grown-ups.

Inside one man's head, an overworked Mechanic struggles with faulty machinery and the head's other residents, the Personal Demons, to navigate through the day. The Mechanic maintains and operates the machinery that makes it possible for The Man to get out of bed, go to work, have conversations, and otherwise live daily life. The Man's issues, poor judgment, and bad habits chronically make the little Mechanic's job more difficult. When the Personal Demons climb out of the shadows of the Limbic Lobe, all hell breaks loose inside and outside the Head.

Trouble Puppet's bunraku-style tabletop puppets are each manipulated by as many as 3 puppeteers and are designed and built by Artistic Director Connor Hopkins, our assistant builder, and invited guest builders from out of town. The puppets, the set, and the show are a visually and technically remarkable spectacle, with a gorgeous original score.

ASL interpretation offered on selected nights. Group sales welcome. Director/cast talkbacks available for groups of five or more.

**This show contains content and copious amounts of language not suitable for children.**

Run time: 1 hr, 20 min. No intermission.

A completely original work by the company who brought Austin award-winning productions of The Jungle, Frankenstein, Riddley Walker, Toil & Trouble, and The Cruel Circus.
