Review by ALEX GRIFFIN

What I liked

I enjoyed the use of physical objects to represent US, our navigation through life, and struggles in doing so.

What I didn't like

The filmed documentary segment went on just a touch too long for my tastes, as the idea was achieved fairly early on.

My overall impression

“Still Life of an Orange” is an innovative look at contemporary issues, captured delicately with a blend of physical performance and puppetry. Within the world of puppetry, many types are utilized well as storytelling devices and representations of larger concepts. This is a fringe piece that will keep you thinking after the performance has ended.

Sins

Can we ever stop paying for the past? Can the person we want to be ever escape the person we are now and were then? What price must be paid for not only our own crimes, but those of people close to us?

Jaded campaign manager Tess Baker (Jessica Jones meets Josh Lyman) is about ready to throw in the towel when somebody wakes up a candidate she can work with - Abraham Lincoln.
