Christine Marie: Ground to Cloud

22 Jun

Tonight, this FURYFactory intern got to see so much amazing theater at the festival.  The night kicked off with Christine Marie’s piece Ground to Cloud, a performance that incorporates shadow puppetry, folklore, a haunting soundscape, 3D glasses, and live actors to explore the history of electric light.  Check out these clips from Christine Marie to get a feel for the piece:

It’s no surprise that Christine Marie & Ensemble won the award for most innovative theatrical experience from the New York International Fringe Festival in 2010.

Director and creator Christine Marie is an integrated media artist and director. She has been creating original work for over a decade, specializing in experimental spectacle theater, video production and design. She is a former 10 year company member of ShadowLight Productions and has studied Wayang Kulit traditional shadow puppetry in Bali. Christine Marie created puppets for “Pee Wee Live!” Currently she is also touring an installation entitled, “Shadows In Stereo,” an immersive experience in which the audience holds stereoscopic opera glasses as they traverse an atmosphere of 3D shadows.
