- Program Description
Dolls made of pipe-cleaners or clay are moved around miniature stages via their attachment to slots incorporated in the stages. Two scenes (“Venice” and “Somewhere in the Southwest Desert”) are repeated dozens of times. Occasionally, the creators can be seen arranging the stages and maneuvering the dolls. Opera music accompanies the first scene, though the rest of the scenes are silent. It is unclear whether or not all of the segments are complete.
