“The idea of sensitively portraying Alzheimer’s patients with puppets proved inspired. Sandglass has developed some superbly realized marionettes.” —The Hub Review
New from Vermont’s Sandglass Theater and Artistic Director Eric Bass, D-Generation: An Exaltation of Larks is a theater piece based on stories written collaboratively by individuals with late-stage dementia. Performed by three puppeteers (the caregivers) and five puppets (the residents of a care facility), D-Generation explores the rich creative potential and ability to communicate of people within this mental state. Their words, images, and imaginations yield work that is poetic, humorous, and quite mysterious. The piece is set to a compelling original score
and striking animated video segments.
