In honor of twenty years of larger than life puppetry in the Triangle, Paperhand Puppet Intervention presents: Radicackalacky! A festival of radical puppetry. Two nights of performances feature puppeteers from throughout the Southeast with an array of puppetry styles, including table top monsters, life-sized paper sculptures, and reverential shadow puppetry accompanied by song. The festival, which also includes two days of public workshops and a late night cabaret, is a celebration of how puppetry can be used to affect radical change.
Admission is $15 or pay-what-you-can.
Join us for an evening of short puppetry performances on Friday night at The ArtsCenter. Radicackalacky performers, Paperhand puppeteers, and community members present a a musical at the bottom of the sea, a shadow puppet show inside a suitcase, traditional ballads brought to life with puppetry and song, an object theater piece about a piece of paper that got the puppeteer in trouble in high school, and much more.
