Austin Puppet Incident
by Glass Half Full Theatre
Dec. 06 - Dec. 07
The Austin Puppet Incident gives audiences the opportunity to experience multiple styles of puppetry, and this event has truly grown the public’s perception of what puppetry can and does look like since our first show in 2013. The Austin Puppet Incident follows a reciprocal model, in which the performers collaborate to perform in one another’s pieces as support puppeteers.
The Incident the creation of new acts within Austin and present at least one out of town act every Slam. For the local puppeteers, we use the “pitch circle” format borrowed from the National Puppetry Conference to help artists realize the puppet act they have in mind, and provide building resources and expertise along with dramaturgical and storytelling support. The goal is to help up-and-coming local puppeteers find their voice in short form puppetry. We also include established local artists, but request that every presenting artist also contribute to one piece other than their own, as a performer, builder, or director. This policy contributes to the collaborative nature of the event.
