Tomte is an intimate shadow puppet performance adapted from "The Tomten" by Astrid Lindgren and the poem by Victor Rydberg. A Tomte is a Swedish gnome, a quiet and unseen caretaker who watches over the lives of humans and animals. On a cold winter night on a snow covered farm, Tomte teaches us about the importance of kindness and looking after living things.
Tom Lee is a puppeteer, director and designer. He appeared in War Horse on Broadway and in Madama Butterfly at the Metropolitan Opera House.
