This work was commissioned by the Puppetsweat Theater (headed by Bob Bresnik and Leslie Weinberg), originally to be performed with shadow puppets live. It premiered in New Haven, then headlined at La Mama in 2000 as a part of the Henson International Puppet Festival. The live version also has a narration. The work has had a life of its own, and can be performed without narration, or puppets.
