Eggtooth productions has enjoyed a deep collaboration with director, John Bechtold since 2011. John is the heart and mind behind the site sensitive work that has become a hallmark of Eggtooth’s productions. With a company of devoted practitioners of 30+ performers who work with us and others under John’s direction, we have produced more than a dozen immersive offerings in a variety of spaces and places in western mass.
It is because of john’s enduring relationship that we are developing a collaboration with punchdrunk enrichment to bring experiential learning to 20+ different first and second grade classrooms in hampshire, hampden, and franklin counties in 2020.
John is presently working on remounting his original production, letter from sabine, to be presented November 8,9,10 in Greenfield at 156 Main Street. More information is forthcoming.
Using a combination of installation art & live performance, children (ages 7-10) will be invited to become Postmasters-in-Training as they embark on an adventure to deliver a letter from a mysterious woman named Sabine to Griffin Moss at his art studio & shop, Gryphon Cards, in downtown Greenfield. An immersive theater experience designed for non-adults (with time for adults to enjoy it, also), audiences are escorted to the store for an intimate & magical encounter, complete with a surprise visit to Sabine's studio - located on an island on the other side of the world. Based on the epistolary story Griffin and Sabine by Nick Bantock.
