There's just something so beautiful about puppetry in art. The intimate intricacies of movement and its relation to the music and text of the performance feels uncanny and magical.

Continuing tonight and tomorrow, The Saint Plays is an original puppet drama by Erik Ehn (Adapted and Directed by Alison Heimstead) examining the lives of five saints, whose narratives meld with modern human stories that become broad­sided by ecstatic truths. Using masks, puppets, live music, and spoken word, five illuminated vignettes interpret the saints' rebellious and transcendent acts in all of their fatalistic clarity and hallucinatory love.
