For centuries, the puppet Don Crist—bal has charmed
audiences with his drunken, lusty, billy-club wielding
antics. But does he secretly struggle with his role
as the Billy-Club Man and long for love and escape?
Through experimental puppetry, clowning and live
music, Don Crist—bal, Billy-Club Man explores the
violent appetites of Crist—bal’s on-stage persona and
follows him off-stage to reveal his poetic possibilities.
Inspired by the puppet plays of Federico Garcia
Lorca, the piece features shadow, hand and large
figurative puppetry by Erin Orr and evocative original
music by Rima Fand; presented by HERE’s Dream Music Puppetry Program; dress rehearsal production photography: Tuesday, January 26, 2010; 5:30 PM at HERE Arts Center, NYC. Photograph: © 2010 Richard Termine
