Press Releezzeee

Performance and talk with Joel Orr of Bobbindoctrin Puppet Theatre

Thursday, March 05, 2009
6:30 p.m.

In conjunction with the exhibition The Puppet Show, Bobbindoctrin presents a performance and talk illustrating the variety of short works Houston's most notorious puppet company has produced over the last 12 years. Hosted by Joel Orr and starring Justin Dunford, Eddie Chavez, and Philip Hayes, this program features old and new Bobbindoctrin Nightclub Acts, including BUT THEY ARE WEAK, THE BLACK BOX, LE BALLONIERE, and NO VOCAB MAN, plus special guest Kevin Taylor presents DECANTED SPIRITS. This performance contains adult themes and is for mature audiences only.

Bobbindoctrin Puppet Theatre has been producing experimental adult puppet performances for the benefit of the Houston community since 1995. With a history of introducing audiences to new forms of stagecraft using puppet techniques rarely touched upon by conventional theatre groups, Bobbindoctrin incorporates a mix of shadow, rod, hand, string and tabletop puppetry, as well as masks, in any given show. These varied traditions of puppetry are applied to presenting new and original works (not performed or published elsewhere) written explicitly for the puppet stage by local playwrights.
