“The agile performers, live music, and stunning puppets, tell a captivating, visually compelling story… I sat on the edge of my seat relishing in the mystery of deciphering the almost wordless story.” – Front Row Center, 2015, Joy Notoma

LOCO7 Dance Puppet Theatre Company is a New York-based non-profit experimental arts organization founded by Artistic Director, Federico Restrepo. The company’s mission is to develop creative productions of dance, theatre, puppetry, visual arts, multimedia, and music while exploring the junction of race, culture, history, media, and technology in New York and globally. Utilizing original rhythmic music, live musicians, dancers, body puppets and larger than life marionettes, the objective is to merge these various elements and to weave a choreography, which extends beyond the body of the dancer. In addition to creating performances, the company provides an artistic home and professional foundation for a multi-cultural group of performers, designers and theatre artists who collaborate with LOCO7 on a project basis. LOCO7 Dance Puppet Theatre Company’s recent pieces include Seucy and Boto (2014-2016), Undefined Fraction (2015), Plunge (2013), and Free Falling (2013).
