Coyote was supposed to clear the world of monsters but disappeared along the way. Humans live as puppets in a wasteland ruled by Wolf, torn between soldiers and the spiritual world until the gods return to finish their job.
Trickster takes place in-between the spirit world and a war ravaged Southwest reminiscent of the dust bowl. The human world of the play is a pretty brutal place — a mixture of the old testament, the southwest during the war on Geronimo and Juárez today. The spirit world will use masks and movement, and the characters on earth will be puppets. (Though not actual puppets, they’ll be actors playing puppets.)
“It’s bawdy and brutal, beautiful and brokenhearted. There’ll be music and sex and fighting and fun. It’s a re-imagining of the legends of Don Juan, Coyote tales and the Genesis account of Abraham, Sarah and Hagar. In a lot of ways it uses stories from the past as a mask to talk about today,” says artistic director and director Tony Adams.
