Trailer premiere: THE MERCURY WALTZ
Thanks to the amazing combined artistry of visual artist Megan Weber and composer/performer Joe Stacey, and the digital wizardry of Antichamber Design, herewith the trailer for THE MERCURY WALTZ, sequel to UNDER THE POPPY.
THE MERCURY WALTZ finds Rupert and Istvan coming to roost at a theatre, their own theatre, called the Mercury, in a city equal parts glitter and grime. Two young men are already at home there – the street sharpster Haden St.-Mary and the earnest dreamer Frédéric Blum – as is the fierce and visionary young Tilde, a familiar of the cards called Taroc. And all are in the thrall, and sway, of
“. . . that railway god whom the Greeks called Hermes, that rascal lord of thresholds and of journeys, of thievery and hard commerce, of ecstasy and lies.”
THE MERCURY WALTZ will be released in fall 2013 from Roadswell Editions, in ebook and paper, and a “bespoke” hardcover edition with special extras, for the Poppy reader who wants it all. This curation process is very exciting, and we welcome readers’ suggestions for those special edition extras – email puppetgirl AT underthepoppy.com with your ideas. Ordering information will be posted as soon as it’s available.
In the meantime, enjoy the play of the cards, and the puppet’s invitation to come and dance THE MERCURY WALTZ.
