When I first moved to New York in 2013 the first show I saw was at Dixon Place and it was Puppet BloK and now I'm curating it. What a crazy wonderful world. This year the fearless leader at Dixon Place, Ellie Covan and her incredible team in partnership with the Henson Foundation have turned Puppet BloK into a month long festival that takes place over 9 nights in October with 35 artists. The work-in-progress performances from emerging and mid-career artists range from contemporary puppetry to object theatre and everything in between.
And Dixon Place even made special packages if you want to see more than one night of puppets.
3 Tickets for $33!
I will not be showing any new work but that doesn't mean I won't be wearing something puppet-y.
Come support all the incredible puppetry artists, see bold new work, and don't forget to say hi at the lounge before or after the show.
See you all there!
