& Friends
(Alex Endy & Blainor McGough)-

Come romp through the netherrealms of puppet and object theater with K.F.

This event stems from the numerous puppet shows, programs, and exhibits we've hosted at Mayo Street Arts over the past year, and encouragement from Heather Henson (Yes Jim's Daughter) to start a slam and participate in the Puppet Slam Network. There is an amazingly skilled pocket of puppeteers and performers with ties to Maine, and you are one of the people we would love to have in on this.

EVEN MORE INFO:

Underground puppet slams are popping up everywhere.

They feature contemporary short-form puppet and object theater for adult audiences, often late at night in small venues, nightclubs and art spaces.

Puppet Slams exist at the nexus of vaudeville, burlesque, and performance art through the intersection of experimental theater, art, music and dance as a viable alternative to the culturally homogenous digital mass media.

Spearheaded by IBEX Puppetry, The Puppet Slam Network aims to catalogue, connect, support and raise awareness for the Puppet Slam Nation.

The Puppet Slam Network fosters connections in the growing field of independently produced puppet slams, cabarets, and showcases, so that puppet artists know where they can perform, venues can find puppet artists, and audiences can enjoy this intimate, tactile and compelling form of entertainment.
