As 2014 comes to a close…

The Flying Box Theatre has a few updates to share:

studio 01

  • We have moved into a shared studio space, as pictured above.  So very exciting to be out of our small apartments and surrounded by inspiring fellows like Egotrip Productions and Rickie Lea Owens, among others.
  • We’re able to rent this studio because we’re taking part in the program Jeunes Volontaires for the next year… a year of puppetry and storytelling, on the government dole!  Quebeckers under 30, artist or not, should be aware that this program exists.
  • We have been following up our crowd-funding campaign by giving original prints by Jesse to donors, and we realize we also promised a little bit of audio as a reward, so…
  • We are making a radio episode!  For this first-ever-audio-creation we have interviewed Erika Eichenseer, the wonderful teacher, folklorist, and occasional librettist who we mentioned in a previous post.  We’ve also talked to puppeteer, illustrator, animator and activist Alma Sheppard-Matsuo, who is embarking on the creation of an illustrated anthology of radical fairytales.  Stay tuned for our first foray into radio in 2015.
  • Over the next few months we will be hiding out in our new studio, preparing to emerge in the (early) spring with a new puppet show at the Centaur Theatre Children’s Series on Saturday March 7th 2015.  Save the date!
