2015 Out of the Loop Fringe Festival: An Excruciatingly Ordinary Toy Theater Show
The 2015 Out of the Loop Fringe Festival will present Miniature Curiosa: An Excruciatingly Ordinary Toy Theater Show. Miniature Curiosa explores the underbelly of childhood nostalgia with the disappointed eyeballs of adulthood. Through low-fi technology, puppetry and non-linear storytelling, Miniature Curiosa presents fast-moving, fast-talking (sometimes malfunctioning) live action comic books.
In this production, Zach Dorn weaves lost journal entries into peculiar tales by manipulating digital cameras through toy-sized streets filled with paper puppets. A lonely puppeteer stalks the child of two notorious celebrities, a three-foot ghost plagues an eight-year-old boy’s fragile psyche, and an opera-singing landlord refuses to return a security deposit.
