If you caught the last puppet slam in October, you saw an excerpt from this show done beautifully on an overhead projector. Now, the full interdisciplinary show is on for a limited run at the Echo Theater in SE Portland.
Inspired by comic book mythology and archetypes, Superhero Old Folks' Home is an action-packed, fun, and poignant look at a multi-generational family of superheroes. It is as much as exploration of aging and family ties as a look at the meaning of what it means to be heroic. The show features trapeze, aerial dance, acrobatics, PUPPETRY, and more!
