After a sneak preview of See/Saw—Wise Fool New Mexico’s newest theater spectacle—at a recent RE:Mike event (see performance arts, Sept. 19: “Children and Fools Speak True”) the circus-puppetry-theater association presents a work-in-progress performance at noon this Friday, at the Northern New Mexico Community College.
“Our new show See/Saw is all about integration and movement and home and cause and effect,” Devon Ludlow, WFNM’s managing director, tells SFR. It is an artistic collaboration between WFNM, kinetic sculpture artists Christian Ristrow and Christina Sporrong, visual artists Cannupu Hanska and Nina Silferburg and composer Ginger Dunhill.
The show—which will debut in its entirety this spring—explores the meanings of home, migration and human difference; and, according the press release, “will inhabit an ever-changing environment, drawing in, disarming and instilling audiences with wonder and compassion, ultimately opening the door for new ideas and dialogues around ‘the immigration debate.’”
After a five-week residency at
NNMCC, Wise Fool’s work-in-progress show is a stunning 30-minute demonstration of the
hard work and dedication put in by the various visual and physical artists aboard the project. Head on over to the college by noon this Friday since, as Ludlow puts it, "The circus awaits!"
