Set deep in the Sagebrush Desert, this visually stunning puppet-forward play contemplates humanity's relationship with the natural world. Puppetry, projections and an original score elegantly come together to create many layers of meaning and emotion, presented simply and elegantly with engaging and captivating puppets ranging from Bunraku to Pageant styles. PACKRAT is a poignant account of one peculiar rodent's vivacious journey to find his place in the world as he ultimately discovers the interconnectedness of life. This Dixon Place commission is made possible, in part, with public funds from the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs with the City Council and NY State Council on the Arts with the support of Gov Andrew Cuomo and the NY State Legislature; and private funds from The Jim Henson Foundation, Hellen Plummer Foundation, and Montello Foundation, Lake Placid Center for the Arts, The Access Theater Residency Program, Emerging Artists Theatre, and The Nancy Quinn Fund, a program of A.R.T./New York and subsidized studio space provided by the A.R.T./NY Creative Space Grant, supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
