Please join me for a preview show of Taking Turns:
Saturday, September 21 at 10:30 am at Arlington Center for the Arts, 20 Academy Street. Enter on Maple Street
Come for the show, stay to give advice, play with puppets and have a coffee. Best for ages 4 and up, no admission charge, all welcome.
In workshops with children at the Foxborough Universalist Church, we made puppets that connected to two UU principles: the worth of the individual, and how we accept and learn from each other.
In four Sundays at Foxborough, I met puppets with fierce powers, puppets with fiercer powers, cats, happy and sad puppets.
I visited the puppets in their lairs. Unicorns live in the clouds, but near their pizza.
Penguins are happy in icy waters.
And pigs love snacks.
Come soar with the Monkey King, fly with fairies, dig in the mud with a happy little pig. I love the way puppets carry us into different worlds with the flip of a hand.
On this site you’ll see photos of solo shows I perform in schools, museums, on playgrounds and in homes for groups of people ages 3 and up. I had the good luck to study traditional Taiwanese hand puppetry with the I Wan Jan Troupe. Watch for lively movements of that style in every show from Monkey King stories to farm adventures.
Mostly I perform in New England, making little journeys from my home in Arlington, Massachusetts. If you’re further away, e-mail me. I like big journeys, too.
