Tin Iso and the Dawn

Tristan Allen

August 23 - August 24

The Brick Presents
Tin Iso and the Dawn
by Tristan Allen

With an opening set of music by Alyse Lamb

August 23 & 24 at 8pm

Tin Iso and the Dawn is a shadow puppet symphony performed alongside an original, full length album. The project shares the origins of an imaginary world created to give age-old magic life through puppetry and music.

Tin Iso and the Dawn is operated by a solo puppeteer, composed and performed to explore the hidden turnings of a world at its genesis. Lights dim to black as a delicate melody slips into abstraction. Iso awakens to a bang as Tin crashes through the sky forming a hole above, light pours through and they meet. Their journey through shadow brings forth a rising sun and the beginning of life. Innovative puppetry, moving light, and symphonic structure collide in examining the universal longing to make sense of loss and what’s beyond.

Tristan Allen: Creator, Composer, Puppeteer
