In the winter of 2016, Sandglass Theater, in conjunction with the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program, began conducting interviews with new U.S. residents. Their stories became the foundation of Babylon, a new show by the Putney-based puppetry troupe premiering at the FlynnSpace in Burlington. A five-person ensemble pulls the strings as puppets portray seven refugees from Syria, Afghanistan, El Salvador and Burundi, making their cases for asylum through original four-part choral songs. “In Babylon,” reads Sandglass Theater’s website, “the blending of actual testimony with unreal figures gives us a view into how we respond to the enormity of this crisis.”
