For all of you who made it to Matt’s album release show at Littlefield, well done. It was a brilliant and most definitely unique evening of music, performance and puppetry.
We have a treat for you in case you were having Matt and Martin withdrawals. Shot by Kristen Winter and in the dead of Winter (how quaint!) - we have a special video of Matt performing his song “VHS” from his new album.
If you didn’t get to the release show, there is another opportunity to see him in a show of a slightly different kind at St Ann’s Warehouse at the end of this month. Matt Singer is teaming up with puppeteer Eric Wright to perform their new puppetry musical about the human experience of food politics, What Are You Eating, at the Puppet Lab at St. Ann’s Warehouse. Mr. Wright’s performance credits include Madama Butterfly (Metropolitan Opera) and Powerhouse (NYC Fringe Festival) and he is a co-founder of The Puppet Kitchen, whose clients include The Public Theater (Hamlet) and FAO Schwartz / Folkmanis Puppets.
In Eric’s words:
Eat right, Eat less,
eat some more (but just of this)
You ate that? Oh Dear, how could you?
Technically you could … but should you?
The dinner table’s full of “don’t,”
I think that I’ve ate my fill of “won’t”
There must be something more to food
that leaves me feeling bad or good.
