Based on interviews with DC area immigrants, Saudade is an exploration of melancholy and nostalgia using shadow puppetry. Written by Cecilia Cackley and designed by Baltimore artist Katherine Fahey, the world premiere will be part of the 2015 Atlas INTERSECTIONS Festival in February.
The development of this project is being funded in part by the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities, an agency supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Puffin Foundation.
In the spirit of a choose-your-own-adventure book, we are inviting audiences to interact with creatures of legend and mythology in our next show Malevolent Creatures. Rooted in the folklore of the British Isles, this devised work explores ritual, belief and decision-making through traditional stories of supernatural beings.
Artistic Team: Cecilia Cackley, Genna Davidson, Patricia Germann, Amy Kellett, Rachel Menyuk, Carol Spring, Elizabeth Dapo, Nicole Martin, Ana Cackley, Nelly Rodriguez.
