Part of the Chicago International Puppet Theater Festival
Inspired by singer-songwriter Dar William’s song of the same title, Mortal City uses music and visual imagery to puppeteer a poem of a city. Set during an ice storm at night, Mortal City explores creating and finding the warm pulse of the city in its layered soundscape, fragile infrastructure, simple light, and periwinkle winter skies. Mortal City was developed through Puppet Lab, In the Heart of the Beast’s experimental puppetry program for emerging artists.
