Puppets & Poe: Devised Defiance

Theatre of Yugen

Recipe For The Macabre: Start with Edgar Allan Poe - the renowned master of poetry, short stories, and tales of mystery and the macabre. Dissect and remix. Mix with Theatre of Yugen's signature physicality, voices, words, ideas, bodies, a dash of Noh and Kyogen and PUPPETS. Stir in a splash of contemporary relevance and old-fashioned irreverence. Bake at a macabre 666 degree heat for an hour and a half. Devised Defiance is a dish best served cold!

This is what SF/Arts curator Jean Schiffman has to say about Puppets & Poe: Devised Defiance :

Known for adapting plays into traditional Japanese theatrical styles and performed by actors trained in those genres, Theatre of Yugen celebrates Halloween by adding puppets to the mix. The dark tales come from horrormeister Edgar Allan Poe. Stories and poems include “The Bells,” “The Tell-Tale Heart,” “Annabel Lee,” “The Raven” and “The Fall of the House of Usher” plus others. Shannon R. Davis directs a cast of six.
