San Diego–based Animal Cracker Conspiracy Puppet Company, special guests of Trouble Puppet Theater Co., presents The Collector, a genre-stretching, surreal, multimedia tale about a lowly debt collector who travels through the urban landscape, undergoing a radical transformation of spirit.
The Collector is a contemporary puppet theater work that enfolds the audience in a gritty environment of toy theater, animated objects, miniature protagonists and antagonists, all unfolding in dialogue-less mystery. This alternate reality is underscored by original film and constructed soundscapes.
Created and performed by Bridget Rountree and Iain Gunn of Animal Cracker Conspiracy Puppet Company.
The Austin premier of "The Collector" is made possible by grants from the Jim Henson Foundation, The Sator Arts Foundation, Synergy Art Foundation, the Puffin Foundation, and continued support from the San Diego Guild of Puppetry.
