Puppetry

As a puppeteer, I can soar with the Monkey King, fly with fairies, dig in the mud with a happy little pig. I love the way puppets carry us into different worlds with the flip of a hand.

When I was starting out as a puppeteer I had the great good luck to study Bu Dai Xi puppetry with the I Wan Jan Troupe in Taiwan. The acrobatic and intricate puppet movements of Bu Dai Xi are the gold standard I reach for in my puppetry work.

On this site you’ll see photos of solo shows I perform in schools, museums, on playgrounds and in homes for groups of people ages 3 and up. I had the good luck to study traditional Taiwanese hand puppetry with the I Wan Jan Troupe. Watch for lively movements of that style in every show from Monkey King stories to farm adventures.

Mostly I perform in New England, making little journeys from my home in Arlington, Massachusetts. If you’re further away, e-mail me. I like big journeys, too.
