Athens Puppetry


Athens Puppetry SLAMateur Hour
Thursday, April 30 at 6 PM

The Athens Puppetry SLAMateur Hour is a new project from the Athens Puppetry Group. A puppetry slam, similar to a poetry slam, is an evening of curated works by different artists in a variety of styles and subjects linked by the shared medium of puppetry or object theatre. These performances are generally short form (under thirty minutes) and are directed specifically at adult audiences. Working within this format allows the audience to experience pieces which vary widely in both subject matter and mode of execution. Supported in part by an Idea Lab Mini-Grant and ATHICA: Athens Institute for Contemporary Art.
