Somewhere in the city, there is a tent. Inside this tent, there is an entire forest. And inside every tree trunk, and under every rock, there is a story. Trusty Sidekick invites you to gather around the campfire. Together we’ll gaze through our binoculars, look for shooting stars, and entertain porcupines with a good joke. This intimate multisensory theater experience for audiences on the autism spectrum and their families will use innovative puppetry and immersive staging to conjure the sights, sounds, smells, and textures of a vibrant forest.
Based in New York City, Trusty Sidekick Theater Company creates bold, original productions for young people and their families. Rooted firmly in the belief that kids deserve theater that ignites their imaginations and makes them think about the world in a new way, the company creates work that is multidisciplinary, and its ensemble of collaborators includes artists trained in physical theater, puppetry, music, dance, animation and video projection.
