This piece is definitely on the more experimental side for me. The story has changed a little from its initial conception, so the synopsis on the website is outdated. AN INTER-DIMENSIONAL LOVE STORY tells the story of a2, who is a square from Flatland, a 2D universe loosely based on the book ‘Flatland’ by Edwin A. Abbott. A2 follows a monotonous, prescribed routine each day, but his life is turned upside down when he falls in love with a three-dimensional being, Charlotte. In order to reach her, he travels between the 2nd and 3rd dimension, wherein each dimension is represented by a different style of puppetry.
Now that’s a long distance relationship.
