out of work puppeteers
The Out of Work Puppeteers (2020) is a project that began at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic after myself, Liz Oakley and Michaela Farrell were laid off from the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre. We began performing a live musical puppet variety show featuring a misfit troupe of found, forgotten, and original puppets (The Misfit Puppet Troupe). The troupe has appeared live in Fort Greene Park and Coney Island, live(streamed) twice weekly in March and April 2020 on Dreamers Welcome TV, as guest artists for preschools and afterschool art classes and in puppet-grams across Brooklyn and the Upper East Side.
