When I Put On Your Glove

March 29 - 30, 2024

A puppetry, dance and spoken narrative piece about belonging, memory and intergenerational dialogue.

23/24 Hop Presents

Created and performed by Shoshana Bass

When I Put On Your Glove explores a daughter's relationship to her father's work building upon a premise that puppets are containers of memory. In it, a daughter explores what it means for her to slip into her father's art—and not just the form, but the actual pieces. This work addresses universal questions of belonging, childhood, fear of loss, death and the complicated nature of navigating generational artistic legacy. The passing of these puppets into new hands marks a pivotal moment of generational transition for Sandglass Theater. It is an engagement with what legacy means in the field of puppetry; how an art form endures and transforms as it is handed to the next generation; meeting the voice of the past with the voice of the present, and singing it into the future.

Suitable for ages 14 and up.
