"The Worlds of Fingerman," with its unusual style of hand-puppetry, makes its American premiere when it opens at the Phillips Center Black Box Theatre Friday.
"The Worlds of Fingerman"
•What: Non-verbal puppet show
•When: 7:30 p.m. today, 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday, 2 p.m. Sunday
•Where: Phillips Center Black Box Theatre
•Tickets: $15 (392-2787)
Puppet artists Ines Pasic and Gabriela Bermudez, though they remain in full view, fade out of view as their hands attract intense focus as they bring their characters to life.
Pasic and Bermudez, co-founders of the Gaia Teatro company, provide the characters with manipulation and movement but don't accompany the visual storytelling with words of any kind.
Music will couple with the handiwork for "The Worlds of Fingerman" and inform the journey through air, water, fire and earth.
Audiences can rely on the imagination to paint the context for the hand creations as they occupy time and space.
