A spectacle in miniature, “The Cabinet” set the story of the murderous Dr. Caligari and his somnambulist slave Cesare in an off-killer world of puppetry and intricate machinery. Inspired by the 1919 German Expressionist silent film The Cabinet of Dr. Calgary, “The Cabinet” creates a wild, abstract “cabinet of curiosities” in which five puppeteers manipulate and maneuver the characters and objects much as Calgary controls Cesare’s plight.   Premiere: Redmoon Theater, Chicago (2009)
