While she is making bread, the hostess discovers that she has guests. As they all wait for the dough to rise she tells them three stories using kitchen utensils to play the characters, in the style of found object puppetry. Children and adults delight in the imaginative use of everyday objects to portray the characters in the three stories. Folktales of Asia and Africa brings puppetry to its essence, in which common objects of daily use assume fantastic character through the artistry of puppetry and the puppeteer. An Object Theatre Performance by Jane Catherine Shaw Dates and Adress: February 15 - February 16, 2020 Saturday at 12pm Sunday at 2pm The Downstairs | 66 East 4th Street (between Bowery & 2nd Avenue) New York, NY 10003
