Description

INSPIRATION, CREATIVITY, ASTONISHMENT!

Puppet Festivals are ideas made real. Imagination brought to life. Creativity shared. Bonds made and friendships forged. You will be changed and your puppetry will grow.

The National Puppetry Festival 2017 brings together nearly 400 puppet artists of all kinds, from all disciplines, from all over the country and around the world for outstanding workshops, performances, exhibits and people.

Puppeteers will gather to hone their skills and practice their art. The 2017 workshop program has an emphasis on the advanced professional, while also providing a wide variety of rigorous learning opportunities for the beginning and intermediate puppeteer. Intensive workshops will focus on hands-on creation and physical skill development, as well as lively, interactive discussions, lectures and demonstrations.

The Professional Day for the Teaching Artist and Therapist (PDTAT) is also planned for Tuesday, July 18th, with related workshops continuing into the festival week

The nation’s leading puppet artists will offer more than 60 distinctive performances (many open to the public) showcasing Traditional, Global, Alternative, Outrageous, Political and Unusual Art that challenge notions about the Puppet.

In addition, Festival 2017 will feature the National Puppet Slam, the Reel Puppetry Film Festival and the celebration of Puppeteers of America’s 80th Birthday with pageantry and busking on the quad! Need more be said? Of course, there’s more!
