Behind the scenes of a popular sci-fi puppet show

SURREY — The all-ages cardboard puppet show "Sci-Fi Double Feature" is subject of the next Thursday Artist Talk at Surrey Art Gallery, on June 5 starting at 7:30 p.m.

Surrey-based video artist Edward Westerhuis will offer event guests a behind-the-scenes look at the Ramshackle Theatre show, voted among Vancouver’s best of 2013 by Theatreisforsuckers.com.

The puppet show is filmed and projected live onto a big screen to create a 1960s-style sci-fi B-movie.

In Surrey, Westerhuis will "will break down the nerdy technicals, creative influences and the fine art of collaborating across art forms," with time for questions and answers. Admission is free.

A trailer for "Sci-Fi Double Feature" can be found at Vimeo.com/64282394.

Westerhuis is a founding member of South of the Fraser Inter Arts Collective, which presents community art events that exhibit hybrid forms of contemporary arts and culture.
