The Studio@620 is excited to present the return of Miniature Curiosa's "MOON CITY"!
Moon City follows one man’s relentless efforts to build a fantasyland inside of a swamp. The fast-paced marvel promises moonlit puppets, live projection technology, original animation, and of course, an entire amusement park in less than ten-feet of space. Miniature Curiosa explores the underbelly of childhood nostalgia with the disappointed eyeballs of adulthood. Through low-fi technology, puppetry, toy theater, live-projection, and non-linear storytelling, Miniature Curiosa presents fast-moving, fast-talking, sometimes malfunctioning, live-action comic books. This is not the theater. This is the living room overzealous magician who doesn't know any tricks. Miniature Curiosa is Murphi Cook and Zach Dorn.
After a wildly successful run at Charleston’s Piccolo Spoleto Festival, and a sold out production in San Antonio, Miniature Curiosa presents it’s latest puppet spectacle, Moon City, at Studio@620. Critics raved at Charleston City Paper, calling it “…one of Piccolo Spoleto's most daring and inventive shows in years”, and promising “you’ll spend an entire hour in wide-eyed wonder”. Of Miniature Curiosa they said “It’s like Tim Burton befriended Tom Waits as a child and taught him to make home movies with dolls and play sets.”
