Autumn Portraits was originally a compelling evening-long solo puppet-and-mask performance created by Eric Bass. Eric recently handed four of his five interlocking vignettes to his daughter Shoshana Bass, who has developed a new show in which the pieces answer questions of spiritual crisis, belonging, and generational dialogue. Each of the vignettes explores one puppet character and its interplay with its manipulator, who might appear as a masked figure, or simply a voice from the sky. Eric Bass’ handcrafted rod puppets are characters in the “autumn” of their existence. In the hands of his daughter, the puppets act out their stories in precise and evocative gestures as they meet their pasts, their selves, their deaths. Suggested Donation of $10, tickets are limited.
