Tracing Fault Lines – May 2014:
In May, Mad Munchkin Productions is proud to be guest artists at In the Heart of the Beast Theater, where we will produce another original work, Tracing Fault Lines. Created and directed by Artistic Director Laura Wilhelm, the production will use puppetry, movement, and music to explore natural disasters, man-made disasters, interpersonal tragedies, and the ways we grapple with these events.
MMP is proud to announce that Tracing Fault Lines received an Arts Activities Grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, including funds from the Legacy Amendment, in order to bring this huge undertaking to the stage in the spring.
