Calm Blue Sky
World Premier September, 2019 - Festival Mondial de Marionnettes de Charleville-Mézières, France - www.festival-marionnette.com/fr/
Calm Blue Sky is a multi-disciplinary experience confronting themes of war, death, humanity and rebirth. The piece fuses a variety of puppetry styles, including shadow and object manipulation, together with projections that features a solo male actor/puppeteer.
Calm Blue Sky is a meditation on the impact of U.S. and coalition military air strikes on civilians, including many children in the fight against ISIS.
The play revolves around the moment a missile strikes, seen through the lens of young children trapped under the rubble of a mistakenly destroyed building.
