Shadow Puppet Crank Box

Synopsis

Bring your whole family bubble to this double-feature!

These are shadow puppet plays using old-time crankie boxes, moving panoramas, and 3D printed puppets to tell legends from Newfoundland and Labrador.

The Kraken
When the quaint town of Pickled Capelin Cove is besieged by a Leviathan from the sea, it's up to the town's most precocious resident, Beverley Rose, and her pet sheep, Ba, to try and save the day.

The Brass Button Man
The Brass Button Man is an original piece of theatre, told through shadow puppets and moving panoramas, reflective of the storytelling traditions of Newfoundland and Labrador. It’s a folktale from Burnt Islands, which tells the story of the Brass Button Man, a local legend, who haunts the local strait on foggy nights. If you’re on the strait in the fog he will sneak up on you, tap you on the shoulder, and ask for brass buttons. If you have one - you’re safe, but if you don’t he will take you away in his dory, never to be seen again.

Produced by Under the Bridge Productions / Salt Teeth Theatre Co / RCA Theatre
