This new work by the exciting young puppet theater company Phantom Limb tackles the extraordinary story of the Shackleton expedition. In 1914, Ernest Shackleton and 27 others set out to be the first team of explorers to cross Antarctica. After their ship, The Endurance, became frozen and was eventually crushed by the ice and sunk, they embarked on a harrowing two-year journey of survival in the harshest climate on earth. Ancient and universal themes including the price of knowledge, the inevitability of adversity and struggle, and ultimately, the power of endurance and camaraderie provide emotional ballast with re-interpretations that resonate powerfully in twenty-first century hearts and minds. The production combines a dark aesthetic with fantastic music (one of the founders, Erik Sanko, was in the seminal downtown NYC jazz group The Lounge Lizards) and the primary focus of this developmental residency will be music for the piece, a collaboration with the Kronos Quartet.
