EVERYDAY USES FOR SIGHT Nos. 3 & 7    (2000)     Everyday Uses for Sight   is a pair of puppet pieces that examines the personal, emotional, political intellectual and sociological ramifications of the sense of sight: How and why we see, do not see, or choose not to see the world around us.   The Home of Bill and Sandy Kelly   is #3 in the series.  In  The Home of Bill and Sandy Kelly,  The Young American Boy fantasizes about the sexual escapades of his glamorous neighbors Bill and Sandy Kelly and later, gets the home-town bullies to build him a club-house so they’ll take their shirts off for him. Richard Nickel is killed in 1972 while photographing Louis Sullivan buildings as they are being demolished. Looking at people and buildings is a dangerous occupation.    Performed by Dan Hurlin, Roy Nathanson, Christopher Williams Objects and puppets created by Dan Hurlin Music composed by Dan Froot Lights by Tyler Micoleau Premiered at The Kitchen, NYC Toured internationally A project of Red Wing Performing Group  Photos: Tyler Micoleau
