Miniature Curiosa-Tonight a Clown Will Time Travel
A fast paced live-action comic book
Clown, archivist, and amateur scientist Albert Billows has built a time machine. Mr. billows requests the presence of an audience on July 17th at High Mayhem to witness its maiden voyage. Please be warned there will be danger, balloon animals, and heartbreak. Pittsburg-based puppet company Miniature Curiosa presents this immersive puppet spectacle for one night only in Santa Fe as part of their North American tour. Integrating live-projection technology, the Victorian pastime of Toy Theater, repurposed overhead projectors and a canopy filled with LEDs, Tonight a Clown Will Travel Time is not to be missed!
Tinight a Clown Will Time Travel is not intended for young audiences.
Sabrina and Damon Griffith, co-founders of Flying Wall Studios (formerly Puppet Meat Market) began combining years worth of puppet making and production skills in 2002. Since then, they have made and sold thousands of puppets as gifts and collectors items, many of which have travelled internationally. Since their first showing at the Beehive Coffehouse in Pittsburgh Pa, their work has been seen in craft fairs in New York, art markets and galleries in Santa Fe NM, The DeYoung Museum in Sanfrancisco, and in homes throughout the country and abroad.
Creating puppets as a form of playfulness, FWS seeks to engage its viewers in their own creativity. Often there is only a title or single name given to a piece. This is to encourage the viewer to create a relationship with the puppets, creating the puppet’s world and intertwining it with their own. This is why the artists encourage viewers to play with the puppets on display rather than simply look upon them as an untouchable work of art. Every person and every puppet is unique. The combination of personalities, real and created, makes for endless stories and play, thus personalizing each individual’s experience.
