Great Small Works
revisits the work of radical 20th-century New York City puppeteers Zuni
Maud and Yosl Cutler. In a bilingual Yiddish-English play that uses
Maud and Cutler's satirical puppet scripts and original graphics,
together with Great Small Works' own puppets and projections, and
appearances by demented dybbuks and Mae West, Muntergang is a meditation on historical (and applicable) models for changing power relationships.
Created and performed by Great Small Works
members John Bell, Trudi Cohen, Stephen Kaplin, Jenny Romaine and
Roberto Rossi, in collaboration with the archive of the YIVO Institute
for Jewish ResearchWith puppeteers Joseph Therrien and Sam Wilson
