The Keeper is a sinister water demon who overturns boats and drowns their passengers, forcing their stolen souls into hoarded teacups. Our story centers on a soul that manages to escape the Keeper’s possession. It finds its way into the hands of an unsuspecting junk collector, an amiable swamp creature who does his best to help the soul without fully understanding its identity or its situation.

teacups was developed at the Object Movement Residency and performed its culminating festival at the Center at West Park in May 2018.
