Eric Bass is known the world over for shows that are an inspired mix of tenderness and humor. His exquisitely crafted puppets interact with actors and masks in a startlingly life-like manner. In this New York premiere, which Bass describes as "something like a fairy tale, an old story, a riddle from the past," a puppeteer relentlessly tries to create the ultimate puppet one that will fly. This third and final part of Eric Bass' acclaimed Heaven Trilogy is performed to original music by Charles Dodge.
