An evening of short form puppet theatre hosted by Beau Brown (United States and Montréal)
Adult audience, 13 years +
The National Puppet Slam has been showcasing excellence and variety in American short form adult puppet theatre since 2011. Slams have been presented at the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta and at festivals across the United States.
Together with long-time Slam host, puppeteer Beau Brown, Casteliers presents a few of our southern neighbours’ outstanding short works. They will be sharing the stage with Québec’s very own La Ruée vers l’or who will be performing their series of shorts: Pommes de route. An evening that promises to be packed with humour, variety, great performances… and candy tossing!
