Concrete Temple Theatre is curating an evening of cutting edge, devised visual theatre.

Tickets are $17 in advance, $20 at the door, and $15 for students & seniors, please purchase through dixonplace.org.
The evening is headlined by Concrete Temple Theatre’s puppetry work-in-process PACKRAT. Inspired by “Watership Down” and “Animal Farm,” PACKRAT is an epic tale of charismatic anthropomorphized animals on a journey full of intrigue, adventure and lust for power, as they battle for a sense of place in their world. The multidisciplinary evening also includes excerpts of puppetry by Theodora Skipitares and dance-theatre by Kristen Brooks Sandler and Amanda Szeglowski/cakeface
