Calling all marionette lovers.
Theatre of Little Broken Hearts, a dreamscape of experimental puppetry, set to Norah Jones' new album Little Broken Hearts, will open at The ClockWorks Puppet Theatre in Brooklyn.
We love the idea of experimental puppetry.
Previews for Theatre of Little Broken Hearts begin June 7 and the show opens on June 14, running through July 14 with five shows weekly: Thursday through Saturday at 8 PM as well as a Saturday matinee at 4 PM. Tickets are $20 and The Clockworks Puppet Theatre is located at 196 Columbia Street in the Columbia Waterfront District of Brooklyn. For tickets, directions and more information, go here.
As part of the launch of the album, the celebrated experimental puppetry theatre company The Cosmic Bicycle created Theatre of Little Broken Hearts which uses Jones' album as the soundtrack to a visual dreamscape.
Each of the album's 12 evocative songs are accompanied by equally evocative vignettes that utilize puppets, projections and creative stage imagery. First presented at Manhattan venue The Box during the album's release week as part of a listening event hosted by Bowers & Wilkens.
The Cosmic Bicycle will now present the show in an extended run at their home base, The Clockworks Puppet Theatre in Brooklyn. Led by artistic director Jonathan Cross (a.k.a. Jonny Clockworks). They are masters of experimental puppetry.
Experimental puppetry, huh? That makes us think of Team America or pervy puppets... but in a good way.
If you like marionettes and Norah Jones, and live in the five boroughs, you MUST trek to Bklyn to see this.
