Steve of Tomorrow David Commander and Rob Ramirez

Steve of Tomorrow ran from March 16-19, 2016 in the Dorothy B. Williams Theatre.

About the show

Steve of Tomorrow is a multi-media, technology based puppet performance about a science fiction enthusiast who posts an open invitation on his blog for time travelers to visit him. Soon after, a man from the future named Steve appears, but he is a lazy, uncommunicative disappointment. Is he a freeloading fake or is this what we become?

Using cutting edge video puppetry and David Commander’s signature style of toy Theater, Steve of Tomorrow asks if humanity’s well being is reflected in the recent explosion of technological advancements. Are we uniting as a populace to build the idealistic future that we portray in science fiction, or is our voice being drowned out in a cacophony of images and sound bites? 

A Dream Music Puppetry Program presentation. Funded in part by The Jim Henson Foundation.
