About Hamster Theatre HAMSTER THEATRE was first formed in 1993 by Dave Willey, who had previously played in Mark Fuller’s group Big Foot Torso with Jon Stubbs. Dave had quit Big Foot to travel to Europe, where he was exposed to music not often encouraged in the states. A lot of free improv, but also post “RIO” bands such as Nimal, and Lars Hollmer’s folk-influenced group Fem Soker En Skaat. Dave and Jon formed the group on Dave’s return, and the original lineup was Dave on keyboards, guitar and melodeon, Jon on bass, Deborah Perry on keyboards and vocals, Steve Doyle on guitar, Greg LaLiberte on saxes and flute, and Josh Wright on drums. They mixed covers of Lars Hollmer tunes with originals by Dave and Steve, some of which appeared on Dave’s first CD, “Songs from the Hamster Theatre,” and most of which remain in the current group’s repertoire. http://www.generalrubric.com/hamster/main.html

I know promotion is all up to us on this one, but if you have anywhere to plug our websites we’d really appreciate it. Use whatever of that bio info or giant run-on sentence you want.

08/30/14 Never Again the Same: a shadow puppetry retelling of Little Red Riding Hood for adults Boulder, Colorado Trident Cafe
Time: 8:00pm. Age restrictions: All Ages. Address: 940 Pearl Street. Venue phone: (303) 443-3133. Adapted from a short story titled, “Detours” and Narrated by Sarah Elizabeth Schantz Puppetry and Imagery by Andryn Arithson and Emily Saavedra https://www.facebook.com/events/1451931651734780/ This is a surreal, lyrical, and strangely beautiful suburban fairy tale for adults. This shadow puppetry retelling of Little Red Riding Hood lives in the place between dreams and reality and bewilderment and awe. This is a story of initiation, the timeless tangle of growing and the way life repeats itself. This wildly bizzar and compelling show may leave you speechless and wanting to know. Sarah Elizabeth Schantz is interested in the evolution of the fairy tale, over time and across culture, and how these retellings change the archetypes of the collective unconscious and how this shift might alter the conscious collective. Her first novel, Fig, comes out from Simon & Schuster this April. Andryn Arithson is a theatre artist with a keen interest in puppetry and its ability to convey metaphor, fantasy and the non-human. She enjoys designing, building, and manipulating puppets in both conventional and experimental fashions. Emily Saavedra is most interested in art that resonates, reaches and stirs. Emily is awed by watching ordinary objects come to life and how in it’s often wordless simplicity, puppetry has the ability to speak to our basic humanness and our understanding through feeling.

An education in Impressionism began in 2012 with a 6-month stint living in France, Spain, Bulgaria, and Morocco, and ending in a songwriting aesthetic founded on fleet-footed imagery, sensory-triggered memories, heroic women, rural Western American scenery, and a God that bears a striking resemblance to Ernest Hemingway. An American Forrest will be on tour indefinitely.
