The Tale of a T-Shirt takes us on a trip around the world as we follow a t-shirt from seed to cotton to cloth. Inspired by actual events, this docu-comedy asks young people to question the true cost of our clothing, daring us to look beyond the familiar storefront windows and as we re-examine the roles we all play as consumers in this game that lasts a lifetime.
Directed by Lisa Marie DiLiberto and featuring four hot up-and-coming clown-trained performers, this theatrical adventure is framed as a school presentation and uses live music and zany puppetry juxtaposed with archival images to dazzle audiences while provoking us to consider how our actions have global reverberations.
