Based in part on the story El Chiflón del Diablo by Baldomero Lillo, a distinguished Chilean author, as well as research on the mining town of Lota in Chile, El Silencio del Carbón is a hauntingly beautiful, non-vocal marionette work that connects deeply with a broad family audience.

Marcel & Man Ray - A multi-media performance exploring the lifelong friendship of the Dada artists Marcel Duchamp and Man Ray.

Come for the show, stay for the woe" is the motto of the morbid circus at the center of the French puppet company Stereoptik. In this sad circus the catastrophes pile up, one after the other. The trapezist crashes to the ground; the animal trainer is devoured by his lion; the human cannonball never returns from outer space. Luckily, there's a clumsy juggler to breathe a little color into the proceedings. If the circus is dark, the tone is light. Music and images accompany the action, and the story is laced with poetic moments and a healthy dose of irony. The visual magic of the theater meets the childlike wonder of the circus. For family audiences.
