Hideous Purple Tentacle Beast

God help us all — we’re working on the set.  How we’re doing it: first, Riley Miljan (a good egg, Riley) welded up a skeleton, with clever ways to take it apart; then, we covered it in crappy fibre-glass insulation, … Continue reading

The set model

Here’s some photos of a model of the current idea for the set.  We were belabouring some wire and plaster bandages and plasticine in an effort to make a great big (miniature) mastodon skeleton, the old idea, and Pityu spotted … Continue reading

Another promo image

This one looks like the one we’re actually using.  In the absence of any puppets that are actually made yet, we made a clay sculpture and then photographed it.  Photo credit: Mercedes Bátiz-Benét.

2 Things

Heinrich Q Wikepedistein delineates two separate Cavemen theatre set cultures, the Freiwandern and the Hohleblieb. Hohleblieb was based on the cave as a sacred location. The show was developed to fit the specific constraints of the cave. Fire and lamplight … Continue reading

Stirring photos

These are photos I found somewhere out there of life-size models of neanderthals used in a diorama at the Field Museum in Boston.  They were made by a fellow named Frederick Blaschke in the late 20’s; apparently they are no … Continue reading
