PUPPETS, they laugh, they dance, they cry, they sing, they talk. THEY TELL!
They come in countless sizes and shapes. They’re controlled by many different means -from string and rods to bare hands. However, while every puppet is a unique object, designed by an artist, they all share in the depth of their feelings, happiness and struggles. Their stories are the most complete record of our history.
Our VISION is to become a center for puppetry activities in SE Michigan, a valuable member of the area's artistic community, an important part in the aesthetic education of area youth, and a significant influence upon cultural development in metropolitan Detroit.
Puppetry is found in every culture throughout the world. It has a long history that dates back thousands of years. From the dawn of human memory puppetry has been a story-teller and entertainer; a way to speak to gods and to pass down the wisdom and traditions of people through generations. Every puppet show is a home for all art forms: two-dimensional background, three-dimensional puppets, music, dancing, singing and literature – any story, be it poetry or political satire, all art forms found home in every puppet show.
