Fringe & Purge Action News and Commentary Squad bloggers Rachel Manteuffel and Chris Klimek have a close encounter with the artists responsible for the largely edible, real-time puppet-cinema (we’ll explain) sci-fi epic PLANET EGG: Creator/director/puppeteer Zvi Sahar, puppeteer Justin Perkins, sound designer/foley artist Ien Denio and producer Ali Skye Bennet. They are Puppet Cinema.

Planet Egg has been staged a handful of times in New York City since its June 2011 debut at St. Ann’s Warehouse, as well as at the International Puppetry Theater and Film Festival in Holon, Israel. Their final performance of the 2012 Capital Fringe Festival is in the Warehouse venue today at 4:30 p.m. Get thee hence!
