Recipient Spotlight: Brooklyn Art Department’s “Wake Up, You’re Dead” opens this Friday

We’re excited to read about MFTA recipient Aaron Haskell’s play in Time Out New York.  The play opens this Friday, October 29th at 10 pm at La Mama Experimental Theater Club (74A East 4th St between Bowery and 2nd Ave) and will run Fridays and Saturdays at 10 pm and Sundays at 5:30 pm through November 7th.

Here is the blurb from Time Out New York:

Your name: Aaron Haskell
Your show: Wake Up, You’re Dead!
Your job title: creator, director, choreographer, performer

Convince us to see your play in 50 words or less. Haikus welcome.
Conjuring puppets,
Big Bang! Primal creatures take aim.
Come celebrate life!

What kind of puppets are you using and why are they particularly amazing?
All the puppets are “green”: constructed from recycled materials, found objects from the wood-shop floor and donations from Materials for the Arts. The show is composed of many different styles of puppets: Bunraku, stop-motion film and full-body puppet costumes.

What’s the most impressive puppet movement in your show?
At the climax, all six dancers unite, filling the space with one towering, large-scale puppet made of light, called the Ultimate Being.

October 29 – November 7, 2010

Friday & Saturday at 10:00pm
Sunday at 5:30pm
