69˚ S. (The Shackleton Project)

Phantom Limb : : World Premiere Production

69º S. (The Shackleton Project) Play Clip
Read the Raves

Phantom Limb’s 69˚S. imagines the unimaginable. Sir Ernest Shackleton’s 1914 trans-Antarctic expedition—the real life story of a group of gentlemen frozen (literally) in crisis—is reignited by a contemporary dilemma: the realities of a changing environment and the planet’s uncertain future.

Theatre, dance, puppetry, photography and film unite in an impressionistic, stunning and evocative series of tableaux vivants, taking us on an artistic and emotional journey that explores the symbiotic relationship between humans and the environment and reinvigorates the spirit of foregoing individual glory for the sake of collective survival.

Learn about Phantom Limb's world premiere production, background on the 1914 expedition, the puppetry, music and much more here, brought to you by The Hopkins Center, Dartmouth College.

“Exquisitely rendered….beautifully constructed.” –Los Angeles Times

About Phantom Limb
Led by husband and wife team Erik Sanko and Jessica Grindstaff, the New York City-based Phantom Limb has been critically acclaimed for its reinvention of traditional theatrical forms, such as marionette puppetry, in order to probe issues of contemporary life and modern consciousness. They recently received the San Francisco Bay Area Theatre Critics Award.

Funded in part by the Expeditions program of the New England Foundation for the Arts, made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional support from the six New England state arts agencies.
