    Mike Disfarmer was an Arkansas photographer who left behind a body of work now considered one of the most significant in the history of portraiture. This haunting and original work of puppet theater explores the world of this eccentric and reclusive artist. Award-winning director Dan Hurlin takes puppetry to exquisite heights with the unique “tabletop” style: the handlers operate in full view of the audience, not just manipulating but interacting with the puppet hero. A script by Sally Oswald, a country-meets-avant-garde score by Dan Moses Schreier, and Disfarmer’s own photographs complete Hurlin’s portrait of this American original. Disfarmer is presented as part of Emerging America, a theater festival presented in cooperation with American Repertory Theater and the Huntington Theater.
