Exciting Puppet Exhibit

naked puppetI’m pretty excited about something. It’s The Naked Puppet Exhibit developed by the Fettig Project and premiering at The National Puppetry Festival in exactly four weeks.

Wow.

No, I really mean it — WOW!

There will be puppets and puppet mechanisms in the display that you can TOUCH, hold, manipulate, fondle, photograph, or whatever. As  a puppeteer, I know that being able to physically interact with puppet mechanisms will be an amazing educational experience.

The Fettig Project was a crazy idea that I came up with in 2013 at The National Puppetry Conference in Waterford, Connecticut. (It’s an amazing experience — I’ll write about it later). The group is a comprised of puppet builders dedicated to NOT reinventing the wheel but to an open-source model of sharing information so we can all build better performances.

An online gallery is in the works. Visit www.thefettigproject.com for more information.
