Invisible Glass is a full stage puppet theater work, incorporating actors, a range of puppetry forms, shadows, and projection, to create an atmospheric world of escalating tension, where appearances are deceiving and no one can be certain of anything. Erik Ehn’s script, based on Edgar Allen Poe’s story William Wilson, explores the idea of the doppelganger, a figure/concept which undermines our notions of a unified or stable “self”, and often arouses curiosity and fear. The doppelganger suggests a construction of meaning through the metaphor of the body. In Invisible Glass, these puppet bodies shift in scale, and are double by human performers.
