The Puppet Lobby is a series of discussions about the art of puppetry featuring both local and visiting guest puppeteers. Hosted by Wit’s End Puppets at the Selman Gallery at the Brookland Artspace Lofts, these events are free and open to all artists, performers and anyone who is interested in puppetry.
Our next show Malevolent Creatures is rooted in the folklore of the British Isles. This devised work explores ways that ancient stories and supernatural creatures continue to haunt us as we struggle with fears and changes in our world today.
Follow along as we document our research and building process for this show on our blog! You can also support the development of this project by making a tax-deductible donation through Fractured Atlas.
