What we love most about our interviews is when we get the chance to dive deep into the work of the dynamic artists we are able to connect with. At Lantern, there is always a deep meaning to every piece that goes up on their stage and we as the audience are the fortunate beneficiaries of their passion, their curiosity, their love for the work they do. On today’s podcast, Ken Cohen had a chance to sit down with Artistic Director Charles McMahon and Director Sebastienne Mundheim to talk about how the work of Dylan Tomas was brought to the stage in this beautiful holiday offering of “A Child’s Christmas in Wales”. Stay Tuned!
ABOUT A CHILD’S CHRISTMAS IN WALES
From the Lantern and Philadelphia performance artist Sebastienne Mundheim comes an original adaptation of one of the best-loved works from great poet Dylan Thomas. Looking back on a boyhood walk through his Welsh village on Christmas Day, Thomas invites us to join him as he relives his childhood: a larger-than-life world of imagination, myth, and wonder. Mundheim’s unique work has been described as “three-dimensional story books,” combining language and puppetry to imbue everyday objects with life and magic. United with Thomas’ comic prose and four of Philadelphia’s finest actors, Mundheim’s stunning visual landscape will transport audiences of all ages.
