On July 1st, 2010, I was interviewed on Brooklyn Independant Television (BIT)’s Neighborhood Beat series by Kecia Elan Cole. In the segment, Your passport to Brooklyn, I was interviewed about Fudgie’s Death, which I was performing at St. Ann’s Warehouse for the Great Small Works’ Toy Theatre Festival. Fudgie’s Death was a segment of Growing Up Linda in which the troubled daughter of an ice cream mogul spirals downward into frosting, substance abuse, and Fudgie the Whale.
In Fudgie’s Death I used tabletop pop-up books designed by Korean paper engineer, EuGean Seo, amplified with projected video activated by Liz Hara, and sound design by Kari Rae Seekons. Fudgie’s Death was written with P.J. Mc Whiskers and Joel Egger.
Also interviewed in the segment were Temporary Toy Theatre Museum curator, Emmy Bean, Great Small Works members, John Bell and Stephen Kaplin, and the creators of Whose Hungry?, Dan Hurlin and Dan Froot.
The DUMBO segment aired July 1st, 2010 at 12:30 pm and 8:30 pm on Time Warner Channel 56 and Cable Vision Channel 69. It was rebroadcast July, 5th, 12th, 19th and the 26th, and August 2nd, 2010 at 12:30 and 8:30 pm.
