Emotional Resilience, Care, Respect and Harmony

Angels In Disguise (A.I.D) is a rod puppetry performance about the help we receive, the help we learn to ask for, and the help we pass on.

A little girl demonstrates emotional resilience, despite being teased about her appearance. A man finally learns to care and respect others, and an old lady living with dementia, shares her ease at living with this condition.

With a fairytale-like setting, the performance is a call-to-action, to believe in warmth that can be transmuted, in communities that can be bettered, even with the simplest of gestures.
