Within an old man's dying few seconds, he experiences the distorted and painful dreams of his most influential acts and their consequences. He must witness the birth of his life's work and its devastating effect on those people closest to him and ultimately on the whole world. Darkly poetic and arresting, He Who brings together live performers, puppets, and original music for an intimate audience experience.

Theatre Zarko explores puppet and mask theatre as an innovative, developing art form, with a focus on building strong artistic relationships within the community. Our work expresses a strong visual point of view that plays with scale, metaphor, integral live music and a surrealistic expression of images and themes.


Support for Garage Rep comes through the "Leading for the Future Initiative," a program of the Nonprofit Finance Fund, funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
