“The Collector” is a contemporary puppet theatre hybrid manifesting a constructed reality, encapsulating viewers in an environment of animated objects, film, and mixed media. As a lowly debt collector travels through the urban leviathan, he undergoes a radical transformation of spirit in the process of collecting outstanding debts. As the boundaries between object and self collide, “The Collector” will invite the audience to question what things they hold most dear and what it is they cannot live without. The score of the collector is created live through collaboration with San Diego experimental music composer Margaret Noble. Funded in part by the Jim Henson Foundation and the Sator Arts Foundation.
