Puppet Slam Grown-up Fairy tale Edition

Greetings Puppet Enthusiasts,

The time has come for Puppet Showplace Theatre's 2012-2013 Puppets @ Night season kick-off!  The first slam of the season is September 15th: The Fall Fairy Tale Festival Slam for Grown-up Fairy Tales.

What is A Puppet Slam?
It's an evening of short varied theatrical mini-plays for adults that use (or sometimes abuse) puppets for all or part of the drama. Each piece is performed by a different artist or artists, and the content can be wide-ranging; some are elegant or poignant, others are satiric, irreverent, or humorous, and still others can be passionate, political, or spiritual in nature. The performers range from the seasoned professional to the nascent puppeteer, and often include poets, musicians, dancers, mimes, actors, and other sundry affiliated artists.

About the slam: Pieces will be 3 to 10 minutes in length and have some connection to the theme of fairy tales. Performers will use diverse and/or experimental theatrical styles which could include: mask, object theatre, storytelling, crankies, burlesque, etc. as well as traditional puppet styles. We can hardly wait! We hope to see you and your work. More info coming soon!
