Nov. 3: Life in Motion

Nov. 3: Life in Motion

Unmatched in artistry, grace, and refinement of movement, The Cashore Marionettes reinvent the art of puppetry.

Award-winning artist Joseph Cashore creates and manipulates these amazingly lifelike marionettes in a performance entitled Life In Motion.  This powerful, entertaining, surprising, one-of-a-kind performance is a series of scenes taken from everday life and set to beautiful music by composers such as Beethoven, Vivaldi, Strauss, and Copland.  Through a combination of virtuoso manipulation, humor, poignancy, and poetic insight, Life In Motion carries the audience on a journey that celebrates the richness of life.

A matinee offering, Simple Gifts, provides humorous, riveting sophisticated family entertainment.
Mr. Cashore has received numerous awards including a Pew Charitable Trusts’ Fellowship for Perfomance Art, based upon his artistic accomplishment.  He has also received a HensonFoundation Grant, an awardi ntended to help promote puppetry to adult audiences.

Mr. Cashore has been awarded the highest honor an American puppeteer can receive, a UNIMA Citation of Excellence.  UNIMA states that Citations are “awarded to shows that touch their audiences deeply; that totally engage, enchant, and enthrall.”
