Event Description

ATTRACKTION is a rumination on the Missed Connections listings on Craigslist that follows three narratives of individuals through the New York City subway system, as they spot and track objects of their desire. Missed Connections is a public forum where people can post a personal ad expressing a desire to reconnect with someone they saw in their daily travels. Featuring the journeys of a wayfaring minstrel, an imaginative but shy woman, and a helpful purple monster, the show takes the audience with our puppets on a rainy day train ride.

ATTRACKTION is puppet show performed and created by STRINGS ATTACHED, a group of three emerging female artists trained in illustration who love puppetry. Because storytelling is essential to illustration, this group works to bring the narrative aesthetic to a more physical medium. As products of the digital age, they seek to merge technological immediacy with the authenticity of the handmade, by exposing the puppet medium to a modern audience, focusing on shared experiences to engage in cultural dialogue with their peers.

STRINGS ATTACHED is Suzan Choy, Diana Ho, and Jess Ruliffson.

Lucky Sunday event at Lucky Gallery Sept 27, 3-6 pm. ATTRACKTION puppet show performance 3:30 pm. Food and drink will be provided.
