From eggs to eyes


From "Egg Noir,'' a  show at the Sandglass Theater, in Putney, Vt., (often a weird place) on Oct 24-25,  which, using puppetry traditions, says Art Scope Magazine,  is ''a surreal exploration of genetic engineering, 'Egg Noir' is an object theater piece theorizing about the course of human vision. A scientist who breeds egg heads, a machine who makes them into eye balls and a poet in the desert who records the eye's vision, are locked into a routine that produces a healthy eyeball. All is well until one day a villain infiltrates this world and modifies one of the freshly hatched eggs in the beginning of the production chain.''

Delightfully creepy.
