Skirball Center for the Performing Arts
New York, NY
Dance Heginbotham performs the New York City Premiere of Fantasque, created in collaboration with renowned puppeteer, Amy Trompetter. Giant puppets and human dancers join forces to create a fable of a battle of light and darkness, with a fantastical cast of characters featuring giant babies, blue angels, devils, rats, and a restaurant where the customers are tuxedo-wearing fish. Performed to live music composed by Ottorino Respighi, and adapted from piano pieces by Giaochino Rossini, Fantasque ruminates on morality and immorality as seen through a child’s eyes in a series of connected vignettes bound by an unconventional and tender merging of puppetry and dance.
Fantasque was commissioned by and developed in residence at the Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts at Bard College, where it was produced by and received its World Premiere at Bard SummerScape in July 2016. Fantasque was developed with the support of a 2016 CUNY Dance Initiative Residency at Brooklyn College.
