San Diego artists Bridget Rountree and Iain Gunn are The Animal Cracker Conspiracy, a contemporary hybrid puppet company that pushes the boundaries of live performance. With support from the Jim Henson Foundation, they recently produced The Collector, a mysterious tale set in an alternate reality about a lowly debt collector who undergoes a radical transformation of spirit. Performed with toy theatre, tabletop puppets, and film, the story slowly unfolds and draws you into an Orwellian, neo-Victorian world. Accompanying The Collector is a live quadraphonic sound mix by composer Margaret Noble.
