- Last 2 Shows of Bunk Puppets at PETA Today!
Posted by : Pinoy Screen and Stage Saturday, May 6, 2017
Sticks, Stones, Broken Bones is a 50-minute non-verbal puppet comedy show for all ages. Some bits are a wee bit scary for those under 6 years old, so accompaniment by parents is highly recommended.
"Generally, what will happen is that the performance will come together literally, with a pile of junk, and debris found objects. The company will just have to play with those objects to find the life that we think still exists in them," said one of the company members.
Using household objects and bit of rubbish, Bunk Puppets transforms simple objects into hilarious silhouette stories. In each scene, the puppetry is performed in front of the shadow screen, so that the audience gets a close look at the visual trickery. Old toys, brooms, boxes, and discarded clothing are deftly stitched together to create shadow puppet stories and characters.
The collaboration came about when Maribel Legarda and other people from PETA watched Jeff Achtem, the show's originator, three years ago a theater festival abroad and they deemed it the best festival. It took years before they could bring the show here because Bunk Puppets had a full schedule at that time.
In the future, they plan to localize the humor so as to better fit the cultural context of the country they are performing in. The last two shows are happening later 1:30pm and 4pm at the PETA Theater Center. For tickets, you may contact Ticketworld at 891-9999 or visit their website at www.ticketworld.com.ph.
