Austin Puppet Incident 2018
The Austin Puppet Incident, presented Friday, December 7th and Saturday, December 8th 2018 at 8pm at The Dougherty Arts Theater, 1110 Barton Springs Rd, Austin, TX 78704, features local and national puppet artists performing short, original puppet works for ADULT audiences. Funny, sweet, deep, enchanting: it's all here. Co-presented by Glass Half Full Theatre and Trouble Puppet Theater Company in coordination with The Dougherty Arts Center, and funded in part by The Puppet Slam Network, The Austin Puppet Incident is an annual event since 2009. Tickets for this event are $15.
The visiting artist for 2018 is Marsian De Lellis from Los Angeles. They are an interdisciplinary artist who combines sculpture, objects, installation, performance and handmade spectacles to memorialize obsessional lives. Their work celebrates stories of unconventional people whose private manias become public fodder for tabloids and reality television. Marsian De Lellis recently performed their original work at the Los Angeles Exchange [LAX] Festival. The show, Object of Her Affection, is an unconventional love story that explores the synesthetic relationship between objects and personalities, and ways that objects can occupy more than one meaning at any given time.
Local puppet artists include Connor Hopkins, Caroline Reck, Jess Bee, Gricelda Silva,* Jesus Valles,* Zac Crofford, Emily Weerts, Indigo Rael, Marina DeYoe-Pedraza, and Lori Navarrete.
*Jesus Valles and Gricelda SIlva will be performing Friday night only.
THIS IS FOR ADULT AUDIENCES. NOT RECOMMENDED FOR YOUTH DUE TO VIOLENCE, IRREVERENCE, AND BAD LANGUAGE IN SOME ACTS. (others are really, really sweet).
