Written and directed by Michael Montenegro*
Featuring Nancy Andria*, Karen Hoyer*, Laura Montenegro*, Ellen O’Keefe*, Noah Silver-Mathews* and Colleen Werle*
How do four brave and exhausted women share the burden of one grotesquely enormous baby? They struggle to nurture and restrain the giant darling. But the baby has an existential crisis, which sparks a fight for control. His tyrannical attempts to pit the women against each other ultimately test the limits of love. Darkly poetic and arresting, He Who brings together live performers, puppets and original music for an intimate audience experience.
Master puppeteer Michael Montenegro conceives and directs this world premiere. For over twenty years, Jeff Award-winning puppet artist Michael Montenegro has been developing his unique style in the Chicago area—both as a solo artist and as a collaborator with different theatre groups and commissioned projects, culminating in the recent formation of his own company, Theatre Zarko. Works include Iktu Blas, __Dreams from an Upside Down Man and The Sublime Beauty of Hands__.
The He Who production team in includes: Michael Montenegro* (scenic design, costume design and casting) Jeff Glass (lighting design) and Jude Mathews*, Ben Goldberger* and Steve Lieto* (music).
Theatre Zarko explores puppet and mask theatre as an innovative, developing art form, with a focus on building strong artistic relationships within the community. Our work expresses a strong visual point of view that plays with scale, metaphor, integral live music and a surrealistic expression of images and themes.
