The Reptile Under the Flowers (Dioramas 5-7)
A Diorama-Performance by Janie Geiser with music by Valerie Opielski

Work-in-progress, The Reptile Under the Flowers explores issues of truth and illusion, the relationship between power and love, and the emotional trauma of war. In today's political climate, these issues are constantly in front of our eyes. The Reptile Under the Flowers is a walk-through diorama-performance in 13 scenes, using puppetry, peepshows, mechanical performing objects, miniature projections, and a spinning dollhouse, crumbling in the snow. Music composed by Valerie Opielski, lighting by Brandon Stirling-Baker. The Great Small Works Toy Theater Festival (May 2008) and the Santa Monica Museum of Art (July 2008).
