Toy Theatre within Performance


Back in 2005, I did an interview where this guy was mentioned; now I come across a mention online that he'll be performing a rare work, and it involves toy theatre in the production...
Master puppeteer Blair Thomas performs Buster Keaton’s Stroll, a surrealistic, dark and graphic text by Lorca. Thomas creates a one-man band spectacle staged in a giant toy theater with functioning low brass instruments woven into the proscenium.
For those lucky enough to live in or near Chicago, it will be performed twice over the next week or so; see here for more information...
