We are sad to share that Jessica Holt (CRF 2001) passed away this month. Her creativity, passion, and kindness will be missed by staff and Fellows with whom she spent time at Civitella. Read her obituary here.
While at Civitella, Jessica made 18 puppets and invited Fellows and staff to participate in a production. The invitation from that evening follows:
You all come! You fellows, you companions, you staff!!!!
WHAT: A collaborative puppet show featuring all of us
DATE: October 21, 2001
TIME: Following dinner, about 8:15 pm. Will last about an hour
PLACE: The dining room
PURPOSE: To ‘play’ together, to imagine together, with no other purpose than to affirm our creative selves, to know that if we can imagine ‘other ways of seeing’ that indeed they can happen.
PROCESS: A simple script will be prepared for the initial scene to get us started. The scene will feature the oppression of the count by the cook. The balance will be spontaneous dialogue. There will be no director. The dialogue of the puppets will determine the direction of the dialogue of the performance. You are encouraged to select at least one puppet whose personage you would like to represent.
