Lately I have been introducing puppets into my theatrical works. In the case of “Memory is a Strange Thing” a collaborative with Marianne Sharp, I was less interested in bringing the puppet or horse headpiece to life, but more interested in the psychology projected onto objects. Why do we construct these objects that get loaded with meaning when they end up compartmentalizing our live? The highly fetishized symbol of a house or a horse end up being cages. We give our lives over to these past memories and future ideals to the point of being disabled. Yet through the acknowledgment of this pattern and the enactment of a moving ritual there is a sense of liberation. In this case the theatrical display becomes sacred ritual.
