Espaço e Idéias (Space & Ideas)
Morgan Fitzpatrick
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

The images in "space & ideas" revolve around the ailments and needs of four elements in the human body: eye, ear, head and foot. Two characters perform an everyday ritual—eye exam, ear cleaning, haircut or shoeshine—while a third recites a list of maladies endured by that particular body part. Remedies appear as black-and-white blockprints, followed by parallel situations from Brazil and the United States that demonstrate people yearning to reclaim their physical and ideological environment. Inspiring words from Gandhi make an appearance, and the fragmented black-and-white world unifies into a colorful image. Philly-based puppeteer Morgan FitzPatrick Andrews created "space & ideas," along with four other short pieces, for a U.S. tour with Frederico Freitas from São Paulo. The tour, called Terra E Teto (Land and Roof), raised funds and awareness for the MTST (Roofless Workers Movement, the urban wing of Brazil's Landless Workers Movement), visiting 26 locations across 12 states in three weeks. Jan Burger, Rafter T. Sassafras and Alison Tubini Miner did some driving and performing along the way.
