Falling Out is the final piece in Phantom Limb’s trilogy about people’s changing relationship to nature over time. The first being 69˚S and the second Memory Rings. Each piece examines our current climate crisis through a specific lens, all with the same end goal: to go straight to the heart and then mind of the viewer, inspiring in them an energy to go out and create or conserve in a way that best serves their own communities. During their residency at CalArts, Phantom Limb will conduct exploratory work on Falling Out with a team of student actors.
Phantom Limb Company (PLC), New York City-based, is known for its work with marionette-puppetry and focus on collaborative, multi-media theatrical production and design. Co-founded in 2007 by artist, director and set designer Jessica Grindstaff and composer and puppet maker Erik Sanko, Phantom Limb has been lauded for its unconventional approach to this venerable format with a particular focus on combining the body, dance and puppetry. Phantom Limb includes a large rotating cast of friends, collaborators, artists, dancers and puppeteers.
