Description: Sometimes the shortest distance between two points is not a straight line. In "Fragile," a wordless work of magical puppet theater, a charming Chaplinesque compagnon finds that the road on which he travels curves and changes...and also happens to wobble, wiggle, droop and tease. With only his can-do spirit and a suitcase, the earnest French friend shows the audience that pluck and resilience can make marvelous adventures out of irksome obstacles. The company's stunningly simple puppetry is set to enchanting original music, gently introducing a world that is as human and realistic as it is dreamy and whimsical.
