Strings & Things Puppet Theatre presents Ordinary Objects, a unique performance of absurd theater using the anthropomorphic nature of innate objects and puppetry in creating a series of vignettes depicting ideas expressed by the surrealist, Rene Magritte. Drawing on humorous and bawdy comic clichés, puns, and dislocated repetitions with an underlying message of metaphysical distress in paying tribute to filmmakers, surrealists, existentialists who extrapolate meaning from the world of object theatre.
Ordinary Objects pays tribute to filmmakers, surrealists, existentialists who extrapolate meaning from the world of object theatre by creating a puppet theater performance that transforms the artists works through miniatures & objects, projections, shadow puppetry and toy theater techniques in crafting an captivating experience for an adult puppet-theater audience.
