The 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.
