In Web of Mystery, a spider dances with it’s puppeteers before overtaking one of them with music composed by Melissa Dunphy. I developed Web of Mystery in 2011 at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center as part of the National Puppetry Conference and at Rachel Rosenthal Company in Los Angeles. I went on to perform Web of Mystery in San Diego with Animal Cracker Conspiracy. Funding for Web of Mystery was made possible by the Connecticut Guild of Puppetry and the Los Angeles County Arts Commission.
