Bride

Bride

☆☆☆☆ “In the church of puppet artistry, Augustine is divine.”
– David Cote, Time Out New York

Psychologically dark and brutally poetic, Bride is an epic puppet work for adults. Making its world premier at P.S.122 this season, it is written and performed by Kevin
Augustine and accompanied by a woodwind quintet conducted by Andrea La Rose of Anti-Social Music. Teasing the existential and macabre out of religious history and influenced by the works of Samuel Becket and Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein, Bride investigates the fate that befell the ancient Goddess-The Great Mother-while taking a critical look at the bloody legacy of her patriarchal successor, God the Father. Five puppeteers, a solo dancer, and complex aerial puppetry sequences bring Bride to life.

Kevin Augustine is artistic director of Lone Wolf Tribe; a one-man theatre ensemble composed of himself (the wolf) and his tribe of foam rubber puppets. In Augustine’s hands (as well as feet) ordinary foam is transformed, hand carved for maximum expressiveness, into living breathing creatures-strangely unsettling while at the same time extremely tender. This bizarre and evocative partnership makes Lone Wolf Tribe performances a truly powerful, and uniquely mesmerizing theatre experience. Established in 1997 LWT is winner of the San Francisco Fringe Festival Critic’s Choice Award and the New York International Fringe Festival Overall Excellence Award for Solo Show and has performed at prestigious theatre festivals and artistic centers in the US and abroad.
