Co-Founding Artistic Director of Sandglass Theater

A crankie is an old storytelling art form that has recently become hot again. A long illustrated scroll is wound around two spools and set into a box with a viewing window. The scroll is hand cranked, the unfolding story narrated, sung or just accompanied by music. Participants will build their own crankie and create their own story. If you love to express yourself in a beautiful and pure way without technical bells and whistles the crankie will be your best and loving friend.

About INES ZELLER BASS

Co-Founding Artistic Director of Sandglass, has been performing with puppets since 1968, when she became a member of the Munich marionette theater, Kleines Spiel. In 1978, she created her children’s hand puppet theater, PUNSCHI, which has toured Europe, Australia and the US. In 1982, Ines co-founded Sandglass Theater with husband Eric in Germany and moved the theater to Vermont in the mid-1980s. Ines started Sandglass theater’s program for family audiences. Together with Eric, she teaches their approach to puppetry performance and devised composition in workshops in Vermont and abroad.

She recently designed the puppets and set for NATAN EL SABIO, a collaborative project with Teatro Luis Poma in El Salvador. Ines’ puppets and design for BABYLON, Sandglass Theater’s newest production, include two of her many crankies.

Ines is currently touring in the Sandglass production of D-GENERATION, AN EXALTATION OF LARKS, a piece about people with dementia which closed Ko’s season on  “Age & Aging.” She is a UNIMA citation winner and in 2010, received the Vermont Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts.
