[Minneapolis/ St Paul, Minnesota]— In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre is excited to announce the 2017 Puppet Lab performances, featuring brand new experimental work by local emerging artists, week 1: Chamindika Wanduragala, and Madeline Helling. After an intensive fellowship program that paired each artist with a mentor, these works are now ready for the main stage!

Chamindika Wanduragla and Madeline Helling will showcase their work March 17 – 19. Tickets are $15 for each performance.

This will be Puppet Lab’s sixth year of generating radical, genre-expanding performances. The Puppet Lab program is directed by Alison Heimstead and is made possible by generous support from the Jerome Foundation.

About the work:

In Fulfillingness’ Rebirth, Chamindika Wanduragala explores the conflict surrounding an artist who becomes a mother, inviting audience members to join her in a participatory and cathartic experience.

Brothers by Madeline Helling
Two brothers take over their parents’ estate and discover that the demographics of the neighborhood are shifting, so they devise a plan to build a wall to keep the neighbors out.
