NewsPress Release - 27 September, 2000Sandglass Theater Presents "The Pig Act"
MARLBORO, VT - In the moment when all is lost, when the ground is pulled out from under one's feet, one thinks of survival. One turns to risky act after risky act, pushing one further outside towards the margins of existence. On what, then, can the soul move?
This is the question posed in "The Pig Act" at 8 p.m. Wednesday, October 25, in Marlboro College's Whittemore Theater.
Through metaphorical imagery and black humor, "The Pig Act" presents a humorous and unusual circus performance that develops to the point of life and death.
Lynne Greenley, professor of theater at the University of Vermont, says "The artistry, the profundity, the humor, and the sophisticated level of inquiry render The Pig Act a classic not only of puppetry, but of performance."
Performed by gifted puppeteers Finn Campman, Ines Zeller Bass, and Dave Regan, The Pig Act features striking visual images with Sandglass Theater's beautifully crafted figures. The Pig Act uses minimal language and speaks through its imagery.
This play is for adult audiences. The Whittemore Theater is fully accessible. This performance is free and open to the public. For more information, please call (802) 387-4051 or visit Marlboro College online at www.marlboro.edu.
