Grottoblaster

Grottoblaster
Sat, 11/01/2014 - 3:00pm
Haybarn Theatre at Goddard College, 123 Pitkin Rd.
Plainfield, VT

An immersive puppet show, live video game, hip hop concert, and house party all rolled into one fantastic spectacle - Grottoblaster is an open-source platform for comics, games, music, soundscapes, and puppets.  Wear your Halloweeniest, bring your quarters, and prepare yourself for adventure!

Tickets for this Saturday afternoon 3pm KIDS show are $5 for kids 12 and under; $10 for adults.

Grottoblaster is an immersive puppet show, live video game, hip hop concert, and house party all rolled into one fantastic spectacle. Your task, as the audience/player, is to guide the heroes- Skelly the Spellbinder and Duggha Trench, through the grotto, while avoiding dangerous perils that may lurk around every stalagmite. Can you find your way through the labyrinth? Use the map! Or maybe those petroglyphs will provide? Will Skelly be able to unlock the Abracatablet before Duggha Trench gets devoured by Distractnids? Cardboard arcade games may give you enough tickets to purchase a cardboard Potion of Unlimited Investibility. Projections, puppets, caves, ciphers, and freak style unrapping battles all add to the confusion.

Grottoblaster is the work of the Cardboard Teck Instantute (CTI), which includes Pete Talbot, Ash Brittenham, Erok Guillard, Angela Emery, Trish Denton, Cavan Meese, and many others. CTI was founded by Professor Ben t. Matchstick, who devised Grottoblaster while acting as artist-in-residence at an infamous cafe in Montpelier, Vermont.

Grottoblaster is an epic cardboard project that CTI hopes will include the contributions of hundreds of artists, musicians, performers, and gamers. CTI is committed to shaking the crevasse and making Grottoblaster live and breathe through its live shows, a video series, fresh musical tracks, a steady stream of comics, intricate web work, and a healthy dose of tabletop games. Join us, if you dare!

Tickets: $5 advanced kids price for afternoon show | $10 advanced adult price for afternoon show.
