SHAWNA REITER - PUPPETS

These Bunraku style puppets are part of Shawna Reiter's earlier work from 2006. Made of wood, bamboo, and paper mache, the characters were created for Tied to a Tree, a puppet production about a little boy named Joseph who is different from everyone else in his village. Tired of trying to hide from the other children, Joseph leaves home in search of a place where he can live in peace. On his adventure he encounters a group of fantastical characters – shape shifters that spend lifetimes in various states of being, one may chose to become a tree, another a deer, or any living being they chose. They live out as many different life cycles as they can to experience all aspects of life. Every few thousand years they emerge and gather together and reveal how their experiences have transformed them. When Joseph stumbles in on one of these gatherings he is taken in by their beauty. As he discovers their world he is led down paths that question his identity and his place in the world.
