String and Shadow Puppet Theater is based out of Olympia, Washington. With mixed backgrounds in theater, puppetry, visual art, and computer science.
String and Shadow’s 2018 fall touring show ESPERUS: The Janitor follows Esperus, a lowly employee of the MegaRealm corporation. MegaRealm is the biggest, baddest corporation in the lucrative business of World-Creation. Brought to you by four bodies, eight hands, and a talkative string ESPERUS must save the old world, our world, from neutralization by company CEOs who seek to destroy it to make room for a creepy tech future. The audience, equipped with over-sized magical objects, helps ESPERUS navigate through the convoluted floors of the MegaRealm building and, hopefully, save the world.
