PUNCH is a monthly showcase for all things puppet. Curated by Gretchen Van Lente, of Drama of Works.
EXPLODING PUPPET PRODUCTIONS are your hosts for the evening! They’ll be whipping out characters from Die Hard the Puppet Musical all night long. PLUS a premiere new scene from the show: In the latest chapter, they’ll bring you three songs for the price of one! Where else can you witness gripping musical numbers revolving around sex toys, exploding helicopters, the triumph of love and gratuitous use of the word motherf***er? You can find out more about the Exploding Puppet show at http://www.diehardthepuppetmusical.com
IMAGINATION EXPLOSION is back to PUNCH with their unique brand of avante-garde puppetry. The Proboner Show is a vaudevillian shadow puppetry piece about two frustrated penises that can’t seem to get enough satisfaction in their life. They confide in each other’s misogynist stories until a strange female visitor arrives. To learn more about this experimental puppetry collaborative, please visit: http://www.imaginationexplosion.com
ADAM GERTSACOV is the most educated clown in America (barring certain elected officials.) He wears many hats, including those of a professional clown, an arts administrator, a P.T. Barnum impersonator, a flea circus impresario, a Barbie puppeteer, and the esteemed hat of the Clown Laureate of Greenbelt, Maryland. Find out more about his work at http://www.acmeclown.com. This is his first PUNCH. He presents his Barbie Oedipus Rex. (need I say more?)
HOWIE LEIFER (a PUNCH staple) shows off a brand new piece: “THE PREACHER AND THE FLOOD” A hybrid piece – part flip book – part toy theater. Nice!
