Anigma joins the cast
Introduction to Anigma
Anigma is the enigmatic guide who beckons people through the pin-lighted labyrinth of a dozen stations in the show’s promenade style set up. She comments and questions the show’s action as a third party viewer, timeless and place-less - a wise-child, encompassing all ethnicities. Her observations serve as entries for the audience themselves to ponder what’s going on.
Anigma’s creation had special challenges as she had to hide a battery-powered speaker in her skirts, wheel smoothly around the set and be operated by just one puppeteer. After a few topples and tussles with her operator, she has succeeded in her floating walk and she’s one of my favorite characters.
