Event Description
Vermont's acclaimed Sandglass Theater honors the stories of New England's refugees with skillful puppetry, scrolling artwork, and exquisite song. 

Using puppets and moving panoramic scrolls, Sandglass tells the refugees’ stories in original four-part choral songs. The artists work with simple means, not much more than someone could carry with them as they flee.  In Babylon, the blending of actual testimony with unreal figures gives audiences a startlingly new perspective into how we can respond to the enormity of this crisis.
