To challenge modern perceptions of puppetry by bringing together four Detroit organizations for puppet theater productions
To challenge modern perceptions of puppetry, PuppetART will bring together four arts groups to explore an issue facing Detroit through puppetry. The theater will provide coaching, as the groups go through the production and into its performance at a mini-festival. Organizers hope that by using the symbolic and allegorical language of puppetry, the artists will help reenergize discussions on city issues while pushing the boundaries of what people consider puppetry and theater.
