In the Works: Lunch With Sonia

October 2021
Part of La MaMa Puppet Festival

Lunch with Sonia will be a dance puppet theatre piece, inspired by Restrepo’s true-life experience with his Aunt Sonia, a woman who decided to end her life with dignity after a long illness at the age of 72. The show will use puppets, live actors, music, video and physical theatre to deal with the themes of life, love and loss.

Conversations about assisted dying bring up controversial and emotionally fraught issues: morality, religion, politics, and faith. With this piece Loco7 hopes to acknowledge the incredible intimacy and the very personal nature of dying as the final event of living a self-actualized, individual human life and to move the dialogue from the philosophical arena to the realm of personal experience and stories related to the topic of Death with Dignity.

Update: A book of The Adventures of Seucy and Boto, epi 1

The Adventures of Seucy and Boto, volume 1, is now finished and ready for distribution.  After working on our children’s series The Adventires of Seucy and Boto, we decided to make a book version.  We were lucky to have received a residency on Governors Island through Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Process Space.  This 5 month residency allowed us to make all the illustrations and write the story.  We hope to find a publisher soon…keep you posted!
