About the show

The Collector investigates the human desire to surround oneself with objects in order to feel better, more than, loved, and successful. It looks at our ability to follow the rules, play it safe, work for large corporations, and the underlying resentment that is a characteristic of modern society. Recognized as a contemporary puppet theater work, The Collector enfolds the audience in a gritty environment of toy theater, table-top puppetry, animated objects, miniature protagonists and antagonists engaging in dialogue-less mystery, woven together by original film and constructed soundscapes.
