"Shadow theatre sequences provide visual excitement...Benson's puppets are enchanting..."
Playwright / Puppet Designer / Builder / Director of Puppetry
Directed by Margarita Blush. Scenic Design by Geoff Ehrendrich. Costumes by Xiachen Zhou. Lighting by Hayley Kaspar.
Goblin Market was produced by Connecticut Repertory Theater as part of my MFA. I wrote the play based on the poem by Christina Rossetti.
7 Goblin rod puppets, a direct manipulation baby puppet, shadow puppets, masks and reflective puppets. Dreams were depicted through he use of shadows and reflective puppets. Shadow masks were instrumental for transformations of size and character to great effect.
