Saints of Atlantis

Up this month at Studio at Colton - 2300 St. Claude Ave.

Court 13 production designer Eliza Zeitlin and engineer Jimmy Lee Moore bring together puppets and treasures from across the mythic landscapes of Court 13’s short films into a shipwreck of saints and scoundrels; a vision of Atlantis, the lost underwater city, rising up from the deep through a layered universe of Gods and Insects, mega-universes and micro-landscapes, built from submerged, decaying relics found on New Orleans' post-flood street corners and infinite junkyards. This resurrection of the lost ship from Benh Zeitlin's Glory at Sea features the once-limo of a St. Claude Funeral Home.
