    Austin Puppet Incident 2014

    Hilarious, lyrical, horrifying, inventive! The fourth annual Austin Puppet Incident is an evening of short puppet works by local and national puppet artists.

    Two nights only!

    The Austin Puppet Incident is a joint creation of Glass Half Full Theatre and Trouble Puppet Theater Company, presenting the work of local and national puppet artists on the Austin stage. This year’s puppet slam includes lyrical shadow puppetry, a little horror, a piece from Gulliver's Travels, twisted fairy tales, The Worst Day Ever, and more!

    The Austin Puppet Incident is supported by the Puppet Slam Network.

    Glass Half Full Theatre creates puppetry and physical theatre of objects and ideas, devising visually- driven narratives inspired by issues that concern humans across the globe. The company was formed in France in 2004 by graduates from the Ecole Jacques Lecoq and was based in Paris and Baltimore before settling in Austin in 2010. Austin productions include FupDuck, The Orchid Flotilla, and Once There Were Six Seasons. Glass Half Full Theatre has received B. Iden Payne awards for Outstanding Direction and Original Script, is a sponsored project of the Austin Creative Alliance, and is funded in part by the City of Austin & the Jim Henson Foundation.

    Trouble Puppet Theater Company, recipient of such B. Iden Payne Awards as Outstanding Director of a Drama, Best Production of a Drama, Outstanding Original Script, and Outstanding Puppetry, is dedicated to the creation of exceptional works of puppet theater for grownups. Trouble Puppet was created in 2004 by Artistic Director Connor Hopkins and has in recent years been making trouble in shows such as Frankenstein, The Jungle, Riddley Walker, Toil and Trouble, The Head, and The Crapstall Street Boys. Trouble Puppet is a sponsored project of Salvage Vanguard Theater and is supported in part by the city of Austin, the Jim Henson Foundation, and individual donors.
