  • Directed by Jenna Ann MacGillis
  • Diorama cart and Marionette by Jenna Ann MacGillis
  • Music arranged and performed (vocals, singing saw and accordion) by Meghann Welsh
  • Performed by Matt Dunn and Jenna MacGillis

A mourner buries a loved one, a puppet made of branches, in a bed of fresh moss and down feathers; accompanied by the haunting sounds of a singing saw, poetic lyrics and accordion.

Lay your head where my heart used to be

Hold the earth above me

Lay down in the green grass

Remember when you loved me

from Green grass, by Tom Waits
