CENTER FOR PUPPETRY ARTS COUPONS IN 2015
The moving words of Anne Frank have taken many forms on screen and stage, but Anne Frank: Wit.. read morehin & Without may be the first production to turn them into a puppet show. It's a daring concept that manifests in a kind of macabre beauty as human actors manipulate the doll-like puppets, moving them fluidly throughout an exact replica of the annex rooms where Frank and her family hid during the Holocaust. More than just a re-enactment of Frank's Diary, the show explores the world outside the Secret Annex as well, with haunting scenes demonstrating the rise of European fascism and anti-Semitism during Nazi oppression and persecution. With post-show talk-backs after every show at the Center of Puppetry Arts, Anne Frank: Within & Without is a chance to re-engage with a familiar tale through the lens of a performance unlike any other.
