Josiah Meigs and Me: A Song Cycle for Puppets

Janie Geiser

Josiah Meigs and Me is a puppet theater/music work that is a collaboration between artist/director Janie Geiser and singer/song writer Vic Chesnutt. This work, “a grand little live-action silent movie,” is based on extensive research and take the form of a tightly constructed song-cycle for puppets—silent inanimate actors, who can defy gravity—performing before a live and visible orchestra.
