The Creator Short Cut

Granted that the theatrical experience cannot be replicated in a movie, let alone a small video disconnected from the actual performance. But this is what I have. A short segment of the robotic marionette as it reacted to the performer actions (and the performer reacted to the marionette).

The movements and the position of the performer on the stage elicited a variety of reactions and sounds associated with the "mood" states of the marionette, The Creator.

In this clip The Creator's experiment has gone awry and he (or it) believes his "creature" (the performer) is dead. To explain a bit. The Creator acts as a puppeteer, and the performer acts as a puppet trying to (unsuccessfully) escape the control of the puppeteer.
