The Matchbox Shows
1999 - ongoing
Miniature Raconteur and sequined pyromaniac Laura Heit performs teeny tiny puppet shows inside matchboxes.
“She deftly reveals the big emotions lurking within
Seemingly tiny details” Joel Del Signore The Gothamist May 25, 2008
Laura Heit walks on stage with a glass of wine wearing a sequined tube top. She takes her place behind a table and begins to bring to life her miniature cabaret. Playing the part of Miniature raconteur, sequined pyromaniac, Laura Heit performs teeny tiny puppet shows inside matchboxes. A dead boyfriend, a sausage fairy, a tiger whisperer, a perfectionist, a bath-loving ghost, and many others play their parts in these uncanny micro plays. The miniature stages come to life with crankies, fire, and pop-up paper engineering. The puppet shows are simultaneously projected on a screen behind the table making the little tiny details of this portable variety show larger than life.
25 - 45 min.
