Invisible Glass

Invisible Glass

World Premiere

Coproduced by the Center for New Theater and the Cotsen Center for Puppetry and the Arts.

Inventive filmmaker, visual artist and puppeteer Janie Geiser collaborates with Alpert Award-winning playwright Erik Ehn and adventurous composer Tom Recchion to create Invisible Glass. The multimedia work employs puppets, live actors and film to explore the idea of the “Doppelgänger,” or spirit double made flesh, in a new work inspired by Edgar Allen Poe’s short story “William Wilson.” An Obie Award winner, Geiser is the director of the Cotsen Center for Puppetry and the Arts, established at CalArts in 1998 with the goal of making the most creative developments in contemporary puppetry available to students across the Institute’s six Schools.

Funded in part by The National Endowment for the Arts and Henson International Festival of Puppet Theater.
