'Disfarmer' at St. Ann's Warehouse -- It's Out There

Dan Hurlin last presented at St. Ann's Warehouse in Dumbo in 2004 with his award-winning puppet-theater work, Hiroshima Maiden, returns with the World Premiere of Disfarmer.

The story is inspired by the over forty-year career of portrait photographer Mike Disfarmer, who for decades shunned his family and neighbors while operating the only portrait studio for miles around Heber Springs, Arkansas.

Hurlin uses remarkable "table-top puppetry," an "oddly funny text" by Sally Oswald and an original banjo score by Dan Moses Schreier. Worth watching: behind the scenes video at St. Ann's Warehouse.

Runs through Feb. 8.
