          Object of Her Affection is an unconventional love story centered on a woman who desires intimate relationships with inanimate objects and her search for love that is just beyond her reach. As a visual narrative about flesh and blood human beings developing relationships with things, Object of Her Affection explores the duality of objects as (in)/animate: animate and sentient through the eyes of the protagonist, Andrea, while the same objects appear inanimate to most. Creator, Marsian De Lellis will perform Object Of Her Affection under the direction of Michele Spears, with theatrical elements that stretch definitions of puppetry, and subject matter that complicates the categorization of sexual identity.
