Dark Light

PuppetWorks: Tricyckle by Les Sages Fous

Ages 9+

Run time: 1 hour

A renegade “carny” from the Fairground rides a tricycle and pulls a trailer full of objects that seem most insignificant; boxes and scraps of things rusted and broken. However, hidden within is a deep mystery of buried memories and fragmented dreams. His Tricycle becomes his accomplice; transforming itself at moments into a Wheel of Fortune, a Ferris Wheel, a Punch Clock, a Beautiful Woman and a Beast. His Trailer and the boxes within it reveal secrets; changing
into cityscapes, back alleys, cargo ships and fairgrounds.Through a strange and mysterious ritual of introspection, the Tricycle guides the
man who relives his birth in a cardboard box, his first love, his life as a showman and his escape from the entertainment industry. His boxes mirror him as a sad jack in the box, a cannonball man… he confronts his mother in the form of a spider, and gets caught in her web, and finally becomes a moth that flies away like a shadow. Free.
