“Seattle’s quarterly Fussy Cloud Puppet Slam is also a growing forum for puppet development—including everything from muppets talking sex to shadow puppets enacting fables.” – City Arts
Fussy Cloud Puppet Slam is proud to present our special Bumbershoot edition! We’ve pulled together a selection of favorite acts and artists from our first 2 years of slams to represent us at Bumbershoot: Seattle’s Music & Arts Festival. From hilarious to heartbreaking to horrifying, both festival performances feature a variety of fascinating short works by puppeteers from the Pacific Northwest (and beyond)!
Fussy Cloud Puppet Slam will be performing twice during the festival:
– Saturday, August 30 from 6:45pm-8pm
– Monday, September 1 from 5:15pm-6:15pm
Scheduled to appear:
Bill Holznagel and Jason Miranda
Katie McClenahan and Jen LaMastra
& Improv Shadows (Reed Garber-Pearson, Rachel Jackson, Paul Velasquez & Jenelle Weidlich)
All herded together into a graceful flow by our MC, The Effervescent, Ever-Present, and Amazingly Prescient Rebecca M Davis!
