fools in plein air: fermented rain

Inspired by folk tales and the natural world, fools in plein air: fermented rain employs puppets, objects, projections, movement, and six performers to dissolve the boundaries between mind/body and sleep/wakefulness. In this commission, Swiss writer Robert Walser walks through the dreamscapes of artist Marc Chagall, revealing human interconnectedness, the porousness of boundaries and the illusion of human dominance.

This Dixon Place commission is made possible, in part, with private support from Cheryl Henson, and public funds from NYC Department of Cultural Affairs with the City Council and NY State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the NY State Legislature.
