Shank's Mare uses video projection and live music as well as puppetry to create an exploration of life, death and the power of tradition as it follows two characters--one a criminal who dies and goes to hell, the other a medieval astronomer--on their own separate guests in what Lee calls "a kind of puppet road movie." We're seeing it here just before its New York premiere next month.
Eventually, you must invest in some shank's mare. During a hunt I spend as much time on stand as possible--but when not sitting, I'm exploring, mostly from an ATV (where legal) or afoot.
