Blackout Theatre, an innovative, creative theatre group, has invited TLC members to observe magic behind puppet theatre.
Blackout's newest upcoming production, Beyond the Shadows, brings to life the wondrous, and perilous, journey of a woman escaping drought and famine in her homeland to find a better life. Her journey takes her through different magical worlds and cultures where she learns to find strength within herself. Inspired by stories from immigrants of first generation Americans, Beyond the Shadows draws from the interconnected nature of today's world. The story will be told through large and fantastical shadow puppets inspired by Asian styles of shadow puppetry.
During this special event, TLC members will be treated to a "puppet parade" where the director takes one last look at all the puppets before they are finalized. Additionally, they will get to see the fantastic costumes and get a behind the scenes look at how Blackout is building their giant shadow puppet dome. This dome will engulf the audience and allow shadow puppets to come from anywhere and everywhere.
Come get a behind the scenes look at one of the most unique productions being created in Albuquerque this year. It's one event you won't want to miss!"
