It’s that time of year again when St Ann's Warehouse sends in the puppets. Not your garden variety Sesame Street-fare, Labapalooza! features avant-garde puppetry that has been developed in the Lab, St. Ann's Warehouse's clubhouse for artists developing interdisciplinary projects for puppets and object theatre. This year's festival includes two programs each showcasing three works. In the mix are Nick Lehane's Chimpanzee about a female chimp reflecting on her life, Maiko Kikuchi's Daydream Anthology and David Commander's toy theater piece, Essex. Robin Frohardt's trailers, which riff on Werner Herzog's Fitzcarraldo and Les Blank's Burden of Dreams, screen with both programs.
