The Box? A Show of Feelings

Dog'Theatre should be emotions shared' is the premise of "The Box? A Show of Feelings." In seven story-sequences the principal characters, a child and a dog, recreate in mime the eight emotions of Curiosity, Sadness, Frustration, Fear, Happiness, Anger, Loneliness, and Love. Each sequence is complete within itself yet the performances builds to a unified theatrical experience where each emotion is not just observed but is felt by the audience."

 

 

When it comes time to compose those inevitable best-of lists at season's end, the top acting spot may just end up going to the mop-topped
canine in Coad Canada Puppets' "The Box? A Show of Feelings."
J. Cooper Robb, Philadelphia Weekly.
 

 

"A play without words and of great universality that reflects the inquietudes of the (modern) man.
Besides the power of expression of the puppets and the technical precision of the manipulator,
the most significant aspect of the show is its capacity of involving the audiencewith emotions.
Emotions which are caused by puppets. Simple emotions but so powerful that they
manage to produce more vivid results than the ones obtained by many live actors."
Tanya Pacheco, O'Globo, Rio de Janeiro.

"The Box? A Show of Feelings" entranced audiences in nearly twenty countries around the world and was awarded a Citation of Excellence in the Art of Puppetry by the American Center of l'Union Internationale de la Marionette.
