Two years in the making, “Lupita’s Revenge” is a 50-minute shadow-puppet play created by an alliance of musicians and visual artists from Athens, GA. The vengeance play features a live soundtrack of Latin American classics performed by a five-piece band. Currently booking 2019 shows for museums, galleries, small theaters, and universities.
There are some adult themes of vengeance and one mild decapitation, but it's all very tame and artistic. If your child can disembowel gladiators with a meat-hook during endless hours of video game fun ... then your kid will probably think that we are downright quaint!

Our shows create an intimate atmosphere of live music and imagery, currently performing for audiences of up to 130. There are no amps or gear, just a couple light sources for the puppetry and five acoustic musicians next to our custom-built screen.

Our shows include a half-hour reception, a 50-minute performance, and a 15-minute peek behind-the-scenes.
