SET, COSTUME, & PUPPET DESIGN
POMEGRANATE JAM: A SHADOW BALLET, CONCEIVED & DIRECTED BY EVANGELINE CRITTENDEN & MEGAN LEWICKI
Pomegranate is an adaptation of the myth of Persephone in which the heroine is cast as a young woman navigating the transition into adulthood rather than as a victim. Through a combination of movement and shadow puppetry, the story is re-framed as a journey of discovery in which Persephone learns to make her own choices, weighing the familiar love of her mother against the exhilarating pull of romantic love.
Produced as part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2014
