A mobile puppet theater that will host daily performances around the playa. Use it to create your own show or stage a scene from a great play or story, such as Ibsen, hindu or Marvel mythology! Classic films or inside jokes. Any scene imaginable!
"All right, Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up.", said the bunny to Jack Sparrow.
We want to give you a possibility to perform the plays you love with an all-star ensemble from your strangest dreams - on a stage smaller than you! The Borderland Puppet Show will even roll up in front of your camp breakfast for a co-created show and dinner! You can stage the final dying words of Romeo and Juliet as Spiderman holding the still body of a Unicorn in his arms. Or the fight scene from matrix with an anthropomorpic taco vs. an alien. Or create your own story in the spur of the moment! Film it and send it to mom!
The puppet theater will be “Punch and Judy” style, with stage curtain, either really lightweight or on wheels (depending on funding). It will have props and scenery, and plenty of dolls. The “home” of the theater is in Kidsville, and you can bring it on tour to anywhere you please in the quarry.
Send us your favorites scenes ahead of borderland. We will print and laminate them, and bring them to the quarry, ready for you and your favorite borderlings to perform. We are so ready to see what thespian wonders borderlings can bring to a no-limits cross-genre puppet theater extravaganza!
