THE WHO PUPPETS?? THE PEOPLE'S WHAT??
the People’s Puppets of Occupy Wall Street is a collective of artists, musicians, and performers who came together through Occupy Wall Street to use the potent and exhilarating vehicle of puppetry to raise social and political awareness, build community, and offer a means of engagement in a more participatory democracy.
We build large-scale puppetry, toy theater, cantastorias, banners and lots else. We perform throughout New York City’s public spaces, streets, subways, and parks in conjunction with rallies, marches, demonstrations and politically allied arts events.
We see ourselves as a support team to the multiplicity of people's movements in NYC, and pride ourselves in collaborating with a large variety of groups mission stems from a shared thirst for social justice. We’ve created visuals and performances with and for organizations such as the Black Institute, the Robin Hood Tax, the Coalition of Immakolee Workers, the Lakota Grandmothers, 350.org, Move to Amend, and many more.
We aim to carry on the extraordinary lineage set by radical puppeteers throughout history, and are inspired by the work of Bread & Puppet Theater, Great Small Works, to the Puppetistas of the Anti-Globalization movement, and many others.
We believe another world IS possible!
