On the Planet Ennui, citizens carry their heads on sticks as a form of amusements. A cow and horse traverse galaxies aboard a floating teacup. This is the fun and fanciful world of Suzy Ferriss, a painter and visual artist who takes audiences on a "magical mystery tour" in the alternate reality tradition of Alfred Jarry and Lewis Carroll. These three short tales incorporate an inspired mix of dance, live performers-as-puppets, rod puppets and intriguing shadow images.
