The Cashore Marionettes: Life in Motion
Joseph Cashore saw his first marionette as a boy, while on vacation with his family in New Jersey. “It was hanging from the ceiling,” he says, ” a pirate, colorfully dressed. I remember looking at this marionette a long time, imagining the possibilities.” The rest is history. Cashore has since created some of the most detailed and awe inspiring marionettes to ever grace a stage. For over thirty years, he has perfected the art of marionette work, and now you have a chance to see it for yourself at the Rogers Center for the Arts, April 1 and 2, 2017.
In this collection of masterworks, characters of depth, integrity, and humanity are portrayed in an experience unlike anything in theater today. Scenes from everyday life are transformed through a combination of virtuoso manipulation, humor, pathos, classical music, and poetic insight. It is a journey that celebrates life in a powerful, entertaining, surprising, theatrical, one-of-a-kind evening for adults and young adults.
