UMBC Department of Theatre Presents Buried: an Original Puppet Performance

The UMBC Department of Theatre presents Buried, an original puppet performance about the casualties of war. Looking at war through the eyes of its victims, Buried uses puppetry to imagine what happens to the suspended thoughts and intentions of those who don't survive. Artfully mixing actors with animated objects and humanoid puppets, Buried takes us into a world where spirits enter objects, long-scattered bones rejoin and abandoned possessions reach out to the living. Conceived and directed by Colette Searls, Buried features commissioned puppets by artist Don Becker, with set design by Greggory Schraven, sound design by Terry Cobb, lighting design by Damon Meledones, costume design by Claire Cantwell, and vocal direction by Lynn Watson.

Buried is not recommended for young children.
