    Thank you for your support.
    “The Flatiron Hex” is a solo puppet performance that tells the story of Wylie Walker, a contract shaman who works for NYORG, A city in the middle of a swamp. Wylie uses his unusual talents to solve problems and do routine maintenance on the city’s interweb biotechnology. Due to the haunted land and sentient mainframes, Wylie faces many occult adversaries. Storms constantly threaten to destroy NYORG, but a secret feature of the Flatiron building keeps the storms at bay, that is as long as the cloud-code is cracked and the correct ritual procedure is followed. Inspired by speculative fiction and neo-noir, “The Flatiron Hex” is peek inside a parallel world infected with intelligent viruses and paranoia. Elements of the fantastic collide with the everyday to become evocative of a magical reality. It’s also a quest, a blood soaked comedy of redemption and sacrifice. HISTORY OF DEVELOPMENT: "The Flatiron Hex" was created by Co-writers James Godwin and Tom Burnett during a residency at Dixon Place, supported in part by a Doris Duke Exploration Grant. The first workshop presentation of "The Flatiron Hex" took place in October 2014 as part of the P.A.T.C.H. Series with the support Heather Henson and a Jim Henson Foundation Production Grant. After completing a wildly successful 6 show premiere run at Dixon Place in New York City in May 2015, "The Flatiron Hex" is now raising funds for a month-long run at HERE Arts in September 2017.
