Great Small Works International Festival of Toy Theater

Posted May 19, 2008 by k_c_ in Events

The Great Small Works folks will be having a week full of scheduled events beginning Friday May 23rd. The exhibit portion of the event will include a brand-new collaboration between Justseeds artist Erik
and sculptor Amy Walsh, a tabletop sculpture depicting urbanism gone awry.

GREAT SMALL WORKS was founded in 1995 as a collective of artists who keep theater at the heart of social life...Drawing on folk, avant-garde, and popular theater traditions to address contemporary issues...[their] productions consistently reinvent ancient, popular theater techniques: Toy Theater, mask and object theater, circus, sideshow, and picture-show (cantastoria)...and seek to renew, cultivate, and strengthen the spirits of their audiences, promoting theater as a model for reanimating the public sphere and participating in democratic life.

Great Small Works will transform St. Ann's Warehouse with its colossal event of miniature proportions. Come see: Six different programs for adult audiences, a program for family audiences, a late-night cabaret for developing work, two symposia, two public workshops for all ages, and an extensive exhibition of both historic and brand-new examples of that elaborate, provocative, arcane and charming form called Toy Theater.
