The Cymbeline Project

A collaboration between the Chicago Puppet Studio, Tom Lee and Oregon Shakespeare Festival as part of their O! Digital Stage series. THE CYMBELINE PROJECT divides Shakespeare’s CYMBELINE into 10 episodes, with each episode directed by a different lead artist. Jaerin Son and I were commissioned to work on Episode 9, which we interpreted into toy theater and paper puppets. Rehearsals were held completely over Zoom with each actor equipped with their own green screen setup. We then translated their performance into paper sets and puppets that we built and filmed in Chicago.
