Created and performed by Alastair Knowles and Stéphanie Morin-Robert
Bushel won't try anything that isn't familiar. Peck charges delightfully and recklessly into the unknown. In this touching comedy about trust, empathy, companionship, and loss, "Bushel and Peck" discover that friendship can give us the courage to embrace our fears, and support us as we try new things, and hold us up when we fail or falter. "Bushel and Peck" is a show that uses comedy, puppetry, multimedia, and audience participation, to empower students to grow their empathy and build their own compassionate relationships.
"Bushel and Peck" is a performance in three parts.
Part i: a hilarious physical comedy piece that merges dance, clown, new media, and illusion.
Part ii: a true story from our childhood about resilience and self-acceptance that inspired the creation of our opening piece.
Part iii: a behind-the-scenes show-and-tell/q&a of the digital and theatrical tools we used, such as costumes, props, green-screen, live video switcher, multi-camera setup, and lighting.
"Bushel and Peck" will inspire your audiences/students to use their personal experiences to create and express themselves, as well as demonstrate the tools available to enhance and share their stories.
