A round-up of links, articles and videos we shared on Twitter this month.

See article #2.

  1. If you’re in DC this week, check out this film festival. Like our show Saudade, it focuses on stories of immigration.
  2. If I ever make it to Vietnam, I’m definitely going to try and see some water-puppetry.
  3. Ten years ago, I met Marsian De Lellis at the O’Neill Puppetry Conference in Connecticut. This article he wrote on HowlRound is a great piece about reasons we do puppetry.
  4. There’s a puppeteer in this list of 20 Theatre Workers You Should Know!
  5. Next time I can’t get elementary students to focus, I’m definitely going to tell them about these Lego Ninjago puppets!

A Huge Thank You

A first glimpse of our crankie!

Saudade would not have been created without the help and support of many, many people who agreed to be interviewed about their experiences as immigrants to the DC area. Some of these people also helped us record sound clips for the show; others contributed their memories, stories of challenges they have faced and of course, moments of saudade. For reasons of privacy, we are only identifying people by their first names, but we want to acknowledge everyone and say a huge thank you for your help!
