Two years in the making, “Lupita’s Revenge” is our new, 45-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.
￼Currently booking 2018 and 2019 shows for museums, galleries, universities, and house parties.￼￼￼￼
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! ￼￼￼￼

We are creating an intimate atmosphere with live music and imagery, currently performing for audiences of about 100. There are no amps or gear, just a couple light sources for the puppetry and five acoustic musicians surrounding the audience with our custom built screen.
Our shows include a half-hour reception, a 45-minute performance, and a 15-minute peek behind-the-scenes.
