Chicago Puppet Fest presents:

Cabinet of Curiosity: Sea Change

January 20-22, 2022

Cabinet of Curiosity transforms Sea Change, their celebrated outdoor exploration of the power of the sea and the feminine divine for the MCA mainstage. It is a series of wild, strange, lovely puppet shows written by emerging female playwrights and lyricists Liz Chidester, Kasey Foster, Bethany Thomas, and Lindsey Noel Whiting, with original musical compositions by Manae Hammond and Charlie Otto, additional text by Seth Bockley, and the searcher performed by Time Brickey. Giant puppets, mechanical devices, and original, live music weave together to create an evening of pageantry, puppetry, wonder and hope.

With support from the Artstour Fund
