Isabel Funes is a precocious 11 year-old living with her absent-minded father and nutty kid brother. When a plague of nightmares hits, Isabel fights back ~ and life for the trio is changed forever. Dreamtigers blends shadow puppetry, object puppetry, and physical comedy into a breathtaking tale of slumber, alchemy, and dreams made real. Commissioned by PuppetArt Detroit in March 2012 and inspired by the work of Jorge Luis Borges, Octavio Paz and Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Dreamtigers is recommended for ages 6 to 106.
