Gut Feelings

Created and Performed by Vanessa Valliere and John Gregorio

“Gut Feelings” is a story about two misfits who find each other in the belly of a beast. The characters find friendship through tough and unusual circumstance, an unintentional commentary on life during the pandemic. The 11-minute silent film was created in the duo’s Chicago apartment and features humanettes, where the actors’ faces appear as though they are attached to puppet bodies.
