Blast into the future with the Chimponauts as humanity’s only hope for survival takes one giant step into a crowded universe. Using giant live action puppetry, movement, video and their signature electronic sound, EPE takes us on another multimedia sci-fi adventure.

Electronic Planet Ensemble, known for its outrageous Sci-Fi, B-Movie Spoofs, takes their work to a whole new level with enormous Chimp puppets worn and manipulated by Justin LaVergne and Olivia Warner. Melissa Vogt-Patterson wrote and directed the story. Sergio R. Samayoa and Chad Salvata created original music. Samayoa also created the video component for the show. Scenic Design by Ann Marie Gordon. Lighting Design by Patrick Anthony. Chimponauts by Olivia Warner, Ann Marie Gordon, and Justin LaVergne.

This project is funded and supported in part by VORTEX Repertory Company and by the City of Austin through the Economic Growth and Redevelopment Services Office/Cultural Arts Division, believing an investment in the Arts is an investment in Austin’s future. Visit Austin at
