DIRT: The Secret Life of Soil

VIEW VIDEO CLIP.   Where does food “come from” and from what is it made? Here’s a lively primer for urban bumpkins and upcountry gardeners alike. Fusing cutting-edge science and age-old puppetry, DIRT takes audiences on an extravagant journey of discovery into the Great Underneath—opening the curtain on the epic alchemy of plants, the fungi’s dance of mutual delight, and the microbes’ herculean labors. Featuring great live music and a myriad of puppet figures ranging from 12″ to 12′ tall, the show will enrich & delight earthly residents of all ages.                         DIRT is performed by a five-member company.  The production is technically self-contained and designed to accommodate a wide range of venues.
