The Wingnut Anarchist Collective will be hosting the Magic Puppet Bus Tour on Monday December 10th.

Jawbone Puppet Theater is a father and son act from Brooklyn, NY. Poncili
Company is a collective of four young experimental puppeteers from Puerto
Rico. We have joined forces to embark on a project which is part puppet
tour, part cultural exchange, and part life/art/theater/education
experiment, and we would love to do some shows and workshops in your
neighborhood.

At 5pm they will be facilitating a workshop on puppet making.

At 7pm they will be putting on a puppet show!

Both events are free, but please bring some money to donate to the touring puppeteers. They will also have some art for sale!

Please check out more pictures and videos of our work here:

INTERNATIONAL PUPPET EXTRAVAGANZA!

Poncili Company and Jawbone Puppet Theater present:

DINOSAUR SAINTS & HUMBLE ROBOTS, the magic puppet bus tour.

Poncili Company, a collective of experimental puppeteers from Puerto Rico bring you 2 short, surreal, whimsical pieces:

“Half Full, Half Empty” Not only does a magical landscape unfold from a suitcase, and continue to shift and morph in a way that will blow your mind, but also we go on a search for a moose, AND it’s a sing-a-long! What more could you want?

“The Last Robot” The last robot is dead! When space and time collide, the germs and insects dance with the aboriginal lady. But what good is love in a post apocalyptic daydream?

Jawbone Puppet Theater is a father and son act from Brooklyn, NY, by way of Taiwan. Adam Ende is the puppeteer and janitor. Corn Snake is the five-year-old little puppeteer and music director. Together we bring you a whole lot of funny suffering and misery:

“Esoteric Toy Dinosaur Theater” The hobo and the kid play toy dinosaurs to reinterpret two wise old black american folk tales. “Papa, listen to me. When all of the dinosaurs in the courthouse are meat eaters, and you’re just a common plant eater, there ain’t gonna be much justice for you, poor hobo.”

“The Bucket Rider” Based on the short story by Franz Kafka. Turn of the century Europeans freezing to death.

Between acts our house band brings you Loretta Lynn heartbreak songs, and mariachi songs about drinking yourself to death over lost love. They say we don’t know how to sing, but at least we throw our hearts and souls into it.

The workshop (5pm):

Make a puppet show. Kids and adults of all ages are welcome!

We will use brainstorming techniques and physical theater/movement excersizes to generate a story and develop characters together. We will use all recycled materials and garbage, especially a lot of cardboard and paint, to make simple, effective masks and puppets. By the end of the workshop we will rehearse a show together, and finally all the participants will be offered the exciting and fun chance to perform our new show as the opening act of the evening festivities at 7.

This event is sober and all ages.

Here’s a review from RVANews:

The Mysterious Rabbit Puppet Army Invades RVA
by Hayley DeRocheJuly 13, 2011

The Mysterious Rabbit Puppet Army is not, alas, a shadowy army of bunnies with strings holding them down. Instead, the MRPA is a puppeteer performance collective based in Chapel Hill, North Carolina that is a part of the Chapel Hill Prison Books Collective. The shows tell stories that are social justice parables. I went over to the Wingnut House (home of some of Richmond’s anarchists) to see one of their shows.

First up: Hansel and Gretel

This old story is given a new look with the puppets (Gretel is a raccoon, Hansel a fox, their mother a purple unicorn, and so on and so forth). Times are tough in this economy for the little puppet family, and cutting corners is necessary, but when their evil green-faced monster father suggests cutting the kids out of the budget their mother is distraught. But times are hard, and if the kids have to be abandoned, then so be it. (“How would you kids like to go see a movie….Pirates of the Caribbean…..4…..in Raleigh.” brings chuckles at the Pirates reference, groans at the 4 reference because really, we needed 4?, and more chuckles at the intonation of Raleigh.) So, little Hansel and Gretel are dropped off, but Hansel, being wily like the fox he is, tags streets as they go so they can find their way home again much to the delight of their magical mom. But this time, when they get left at the Durham theater, they are truly abandoned. Nobody offers them help until Mr. Turbine–who ends up locking up poor Gretel in a cage.
