Artist's Statement:

ARTIST BIO: 

Faye is a theater artist who began her puppet journey over twenty years ago when she met and apprenticed under her childhood hero, puppeteer Noreen Young.  Since then she has performed around the world and has worked as a director, designer and educator throughout Eastern Canada and the USA. In 2004 Faye formed the company Foreign Landscapes Productions, under which she has created and toured several award-winning productions including “By the Willow,” “Birds Eye View,” and “The Great Red Ball Rescue.” Critics have described FLP’s work as “spellbinding,” “imaginative,” and “powerful.” In 2020 Faye launched Cozy Arts, an organization that “nurtures the tender hearts of children” through the art of puppetry. 

ARTIST STATEMENT:

I believe that puppetry is a theatrical art form that embodies the poetry of dance and the fluidity of music.  It is a kinetic visual world that relies less on language and more on metaphor to lead audiences down pathways to uncanny worlds that delight the senses, challenge the mind, and bite at the heart. I want my shows to make children squeal with delight and adults sigh with remembrance. Trained as an actor and visual artist, puppetry is the medium that allows me to scratch at my creative curiosity, stretch my artistic wings, and explore questions about our collective humanity.
