Cashore Marionettes: Simple Gifts

A series of touching portrayals & poignant scenes from everyday life, set to stunning music by Vivaldi, Strauss, Beethoven, and Copland. Marionettes are engineering marvels, their movement is extraordinary.

It is a measure of Cashore’s engrossing artistry that even as we see him pitch and yaw the elaborate apparatus that controls each character, we soon forget about the man and fix our attention instead on the hypnotic, languorous movements of the marionettes. —Tony Farrell, Richmond Times-Dispatch
