Life in Motion

In Life in Motion, marionette constructor and artist Joseph Cashore presents his collection of masterworks. Characters of depth, integrity and humanity are portrayed in a series of scenes taken from everyday life, set to music by Beethoven, Vivaldi, Strauss and Copland. The result is a powerful, entertaining, surprising, theatrically satisfying, one-of-a-kind evening for adults and young adults. • Not recommended for very young children
