Sandglass Theater presents Les Sage Fous, from Quebec, in Tricyckle
December 1 at 7:30 pm$16 – $20
A mysterious puppetry duet between a man and his bike.
Sandglass Theater will present the Quebecois theater company Les Sages Fous for two performances of Tricyckle. The performances will take place on Friday December 1 and 2nd at 7:30 PM in the Putney Central School gymnasium.
Tricyckle is a dream-like adventure of mystery and transformation. A renegade “carny” from the Fairground rides a tricycle and pulls a trailer full of objects that seem most insignificant; boxes and scraps of things rusted and broken. However, hidden within is a deep puzzle of buried memories and fragmented dreams. His Tricycle becomes his accomplice; transforming itself at moments into a Wheel of Fortune, a Ferris Wheel, a Punch Clock, a Beautiful Woman and a Beast. His Trailer and the boxes within it reveal secrets; changing into cityscapes, back alleys, cargo ships and fairgrounds. Through a strange and curious ritual of introspection, the Tricycle guides the man to relive the cycles and images of his life in a search for freedom.
