SANDGLASS THEATER was founded in Munich, Germany in 1982, by Eric Bass and Ines Zeller Bass. The first company production, Sand, was completed in 1985. Sand toured throughout Europe and was presented at the First New York International Festival of the Arts. The company moved to Vermont in 1986 and created Invitations to Heaven (1990), which was presented in the Brooklyn Academy of Music's Next Wave Festival, and The Village Child, which completed the company's Heaven Trilogy, pieces related by the theme of integrating the voices of history in our lives. In 1996, Sandglass opened its own 60-seat barn theater in Putney, Vermont, where it performs its own repertoire, presents guest artists and offers workshops. Never Been Anywhere was performed at Puppeteers of America National Festival in Toledo, OH as well as Le Festival Mondial des Theatres de Marionettes in Charleville, France and throughout Germany. Never Been Anywhere will again be touring to France in the spring of 1999.
