LABAPALOOZA A Festival of New Puppet TheaterSt. Ann's Warehouse
29 Jay St, New York, NY
It’s that time of year again when St Ann's Warehouse sends in the puppets. Not your garden variety Sesame Street-fare, Labapalooza! features avant-garde puppetry that has been developed in the Lab, St. Ann's Warehouse's clubhouse for artists developing interdisciplinary projects for puppets and object theatre. This year's festival includes two programs. In the mix you’ll find Julian Crouch and Saskia Lane’s Rock Paper Scissors, Puppet Cinema and Justin Perkins’ Gulliver’s Travels (Excerpts), and The Wider Earth, a non-traditional puppetry work that nods to the story of Charles Darwin. Ken Nintzel’s Frances Faye’s Folk Song Sing-A-Long, which is based on the 1957 jazz/folk album Frances Faye Sings Folk Songs, appears in both programs.
