Still Life and Other Stories by Matt Sandbank

What do we do when the world refuses to behave as we expect? Still Life poses several answers to this question through a collection of nonverbal shadow theater vignettes. Filled with dazzling puppets and absurdly-comic surprises, this virtuosic performance has delighted audiences across the country.
Funded in part by the Puppeteers of America Rose Endowment and featured at the National Puppetry Festival, Still Life is a collection of wordless shadow shorts that surprises and delights audiences with visual storytelling!
