Event Details

VAS Social Hour: SFAI Café » 6:30–7:30 pm 

 San Francisco–native Basil Twist has established himself, over a 20-year career, as one of the foremost puppeteers in the United States. His productions have toured the world and new projects have been commissioned by Lincoln Center, New York; Japan Society, New York; and Spoleto Festival, Charleston, South Carolina. Twist is renowned for having advanced new techniques and genres of performance that bring puppeteering into the realms of contemporary theater and visual art. Through both technical innovation and poetic force, his works conjure iconic worlds on the stage. Among many awards, Twist has received United States Artists and Guggenheim fellowships, and was most recently awarded a Doris Duke Performing Artist Award. Twist is the Mohr Visiting Artist at Stanford University for Spring 2014.
