my dear LewisKyle Loven
What are the mementos we keep or pass along to retain the story of our life? Lewis is at the end of his journey met with the task of looking back over a life lived. What unfolds is a pilgrimage made by his mind and body into the dark and dusty corners of memory. Puppetry, objects, video, and music unexpectedly combine in this “stunning piece of small-scale theater” (The Stranger). Formerly Seattle-based, Kyle Loven makes his Canadian debut with this Jim Henson Foundation-supported piece.
“Kyle Loven just might be a burgeoning genius. Loven’s aesthetic is a little bit Edward Gorey, a little bit Samuel Beckett, and a little bit Czech surrealism…” – The Stranger
Original Music: George Maurer
Video Assistance: Andrea Steudel and Elise Langer
