We did too!
So we asked Bedlam Theatre and more than a dozen local puppeteers to come hang out in the McGuire and create a wild puppet world populated by 150 of the Twin Cities’ weirdest, most arresting puppets, large and small. They’re all sitting in the theater (or hanging from the ceiling) and watching a mash-up of their favorite puppet films, created by filmmaker Ragnar Freidank, a collaborator of Julian Crouch from the UK troupe Improbable.
We are calling it – Puppet Cinema for Puppets – An Unlikely Installation, and it’s presented in association with Improbable’s The Devil and Mister Punch, May 19-21.
Join us at two free open house events, where more than a dozen featured local puppet creators will be on hand to meet and talk all manner of puppet subjects.
Thursday Evening May 19, 7-8pm
Saturday Afternoon May 21, 11am-5pm
Open prior to all the Devil and Mister Punch performances and for one full special day on Saturday May 21, 2011 during gallery hours (11am – 5pm).
Copresented with Bedlam Theatre and the National Performance Network (NPN).
