Fabricating fantastical worlds with the most ordinary of materials, Paperhand Puppet Intervention has been wowing audiences for over 15 years. Each year's production is new and original, and all feature giant puppets, stilt dancers, shadow puppets, and great live music.
About this year’s show, co-director Donovan Zimmerman asks, “What makes us who we are? Is it our cleverness, the machines we forge, and the towers we build? Or is it the stories we share and the fire in our hearts?”
While suitable for all ages, the show carries a strong environmental message with some adult content.
