In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre is excited to announce the 2017 Puppet Lab performances, featuring brand new experimental work by four local emerging artists: Chamindika Wanduragala, Allison Osberg, Patty Gille, and Madeline Helling. After an intensive fellowship program that paired each artist with a mentor, these works are now ready for the main stage!

The performances are broken up into two weekends with two shows each weekend. Chamindika Wanduragla and Madeline Helling will showcase their work March 17 – 19. Patty Gille and Allison Osberg will be featured the following weekend, March 24 – 26. Tickets are $15 for each performance.

This will be Puppet Lab’s sixth year of generating radical, genre-expanding performances. The Puppet Lab program is directed by Alison Heimstead and is made possible by generous support from the Jerome Foundation.

About the work:

In Fulfillingness’ Rebirth, Chamindika Wanduragala explores the conflict surrounding an artist who becomes a mother, inviting audience members to join her in a participatory and cathartic experience.

Brothers by Madeline Helling
Two brothers take over their parents’ estate and discover that the demographics of the neighborhood are shifting, so they devise a plan to build a wall to keep the neighbors out.

Bipolar Lite by Patty Gille is a colorful variety show featuring puppets, masks, and slapstick performances that reflect Gille’s experiences and challenges living a bipolar life.

Mythomania by Allison Osberg is a fairly factual study of our post-truth world, told through the eyes of a sweet potato.
