Save the date!
Leaves will fall. Bears will binge. Autumnal Equinoxes will nox?! Quick! Before all the puppeteers go into hibernation for the winter come see the 7th volume of the Fussy Cloud Puppet Slam!
Puppeteers from the Northwest and beyond share their best new puppet shorts before the chilly Seattle winter forces them to wear pants. We mean their best new short-form puppetry pieces. Er, short works of puppetry. Oh well, you get it. Join us in the lower space of Theatre Off Jackson for an evening of short-form adult puppet variety!
Our host for the evening is our favorite comedian and puppet whisperer Emmett Montgomery.
TWO SHOWS! ONE NIGHT!
7:00pm OR 9:30pm!
The lower space at the Theatre Off Jackson!
$10 tickets at the door with cash/card or in advance.
THE DOUGLAS PAASCH PUPPET PLAYHOUSE
October 3-‐6, 2013 Seattle
Request for Proposals
Strawberry Theatre Workshop is seeking short puppet performances for the inaugural The Douglas Paasch Puppet Playhouse, performing at the Lee Center at Seattle University, October 3-‐6. This is a professional opportunity to exhibit the finest contemporary work in puppetry arts, and a tribute to one of the nation’s most accomplished puppeteers, Doug Paasch.
The Playhouse program will feature 4-‐5 short puppet plays in the first act, and a longer narrative piece in act two. Strawshop is currently seeking puppet plays for the first act only—pieces that are 5-‐20 minutes, and demonstrate the versatility and ingenuity of puppet performance. Selection will be based on quality of work, and the suitability of each project to build a cohesive first act. The Playhouse is not a new works festival, but new work will be considered.
Each puppet show will receive a stipend of $300-‐$800, depending on the breadth of the piece, numbers of artists, or transportation costs. There is no housing available.
To make a proposal, please send:
2. Principal artists involved (or company of artists)
3. Narrative description of the work
4. Photographs or video of the artists’ best career work
5. Letters of reference (endorsement of the work or the artists from critics, funders, audience members, theatre colleagues)
Please send the above to:
Greg Carter Artistic Director firstname.lastname@example.org
All proposals must be received prior to August 24, 2013. Early proposals are encouraged. Final program will be selected by August 31, 2013.
