SpringFest: Pop Suckets
Cute and unpredictable animal puppets, portrayed by musicians pushing at the extremes of vocal expression, try (and mostly fail) to stay out of a series of recursively nested Hells. The show will function as a series of episodes for children's television, investigating themes such as: how flowers mimic the shapes of sexually desirable insects to fool the insects into pollinating them through attempted mating; how the development of telecommunications electronics is the result of aliens programming us to extract and collect rare earth metals; the alienation and disempowerment of the information age.
