Sleep/Sommeil  •  deviser. puppeteer. fabrication

   

Sleep/Sommeil is a puppet show inspired by the life and work of Salvador Dalí.  The story of his difficult childhood growing up in the shadow of a deceased older brother, and with an over bearing father, is told through a vast array of puppets.  Overhead projection, a cloth goose, wooden figures of his wife and father, and puppets of Dalí himself all come together to tell his tale.

Created in collaboration with Serra Hirsch of Puppet Junction.
