The Magic Fish is a puppet show inspired by childhood experiences fishing in the Pacific NW. The story is informed by the Irish fairytale Soul Cages, Punch and Judy techniques of historic puppetry and contemporary mask and mime. It follows a little boy who does not heed to his mom's call nor to convention and meets with his own adventures, only to return home wiser. This performance engages audiences of all ages, combining innocence and sophistication to address ideas of ethics, the environment and transformation.
This world premiere production by Leaven Dream Puppets features puppeteers, David Woodin and Anca Hariton, with their original puppets, script, set, and choreography. The show is 30 minutes with additional 15 minutes for audience questions and meeting the puppets. This project is funded in part by the Regional Arts & Culture Council.
