The Coldest Year

fn_main_coldestyearA miniature city is created from medicine cabinets, desk lamps, Victorian dollhouses, and repurposed junk. Inside, amongst the tiny copper-wire trees and within the cramped bedrooms of the pocket-sized residents, puppeteer Zach Dorn reveals the miniature city’s hidden stories. Equipped with video technology, Dorn sends digital cameras through the cardboard streets, projecting puppet performances for children and adults alike. This is It Was the Coldest Year, an immersive one-of-a-kind puppet spectacle originally created and performed at Pittsburgh’s Children’s Museum in 2012.
