Short Piece

Short piece Adult audience, 16 years + Without words

Inspired by the life of Pierre Seel – who was arrested and imprisoned in a concentration camp by the Nazis on suspicion of being gay – Schweinehund is a meditation on Seel’s real-life tragedy during this dark time.

Initially developed as a ten-minute workshop performance for the 2011 Xperimental Puppetry Theater program at the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta, GA, the team is now focused on expanding Schweinehund into a full-length puppet theatre production that will premiere in 2014.
