Meet the Unitards

 

The Unitards Theater Company is the weird synergy that happens when Daniel Patrick Fay and Andrew Livingston collaborate. Over the last 8 years The Unitards have produced some delightfully strange shows in which puppetry and music aim to be on equal footing. Both artists bring to the table their unique voices in their respective fields. The results range from , strange, silly, haunting and beautiful. They have produced and performed shows and puppet installations from here to Kalamazoo! Their shows have enjoyed tours from here to below the mythical Mason Dixon Line. They have appeared at The Bushwick Cabaret, Labapalooza, The Comic Book Theater festival and many other art and theater festivals throughout the NYC area where they perform experimental musical puppetry. They’ve recently returned from Norway where they developed their most recent production, Point Pleasant in residency at The Norland Visual Theater. They will return in 2018 where they will tour the work.
