Puppets! Aiiiieeeeeeee! Connecticut is home, for some reason, to a lot of puppets. A lot of them. Really a lot. What are they doing here? Do they hate us? Do they plan to drain our life forces and take over?
Bart Roccoberton will talk about the joyous side of puppetry. He runs the puppetry program at UConn.
Anne Cubberly is a Hartford kinetic sculptor who makes puppets that sometimes creep even her out. Colin and Ann’s evil puppets will be performing in “Dirt,” later this fall at the Wadsworth Atheneum. Colin has also performed (in the Hartford Symphony’s “Peter and the Wolf”) with Bart’s puppets, and they were quite nice.
Also, on “Let Us Correct You,” what – really – is the Immaculate Conception? You might be surprised.
