How Giants Are Small Makes Magic

The creative impulses of Giants Are Small are engaged in a constant tête-à-tête: the hand of the artist vs. technological possibility…okay, the hand-wrought in concert with technology. Giants Are Small productions - for the stage, the screen or other platforms — are a series of highly composed images, live or made in the Studio, sometimes consisting of many, improbable parts, adding up to a very big whole, punctuated by that brand-name Giants humor.

NEW YORK CULTURAL ICON JUSTIN VIVIAN BOND WILL BE PART OF GIANTS ARE SMALL’S DADABOMB
