Online Hubbub: Aurélia’s Oratorio, Wednesday, December 24, 2008

If you could learn how to perform one of Aurélia’s tricks, which one would it be and why?

“How to play the clocks, because I like clocks and playing with time.”—RJPB

“Liked the puppet show.”—Lenore T.

“Dancing while trading clothes.  I’d like to be able to dance that well.”—Roy R.

If you could ask Aurélia to bring a dream to life for you, what would it be?

“Waking up to find out you’re still dreaming….”—RJPB

Victoria Chaplin was inspired to create this production by illustrations from a book about a world turned upside down.  What elements of inversion did you notice in the production?

“Gravity (upside down palanquin, climbing down rope), shadow and person trading places, planting flowers upside down, smoking infant, seemingly disconnected body parts, time to go to sleep alarm clock.”—Roy R.

“The human was on stage and the puppets were in the audience.”—Lenore T.

Aurélia’s mother directed her in this production.  What artistic creations have you made with your family (in public or at home)?

“Every Halloween costume is a family creation, snow and ice sculptures, home movies that always have a sinister element, cardboard box buildings, origami flower arrangements, painted furniture.”—Roy R.
