|The Action Puppet Force Slam is a proud member |
of the Puppet Slam Network (and past recipient of
production and travel grants).
Puppet Slams are evenings of micro-plays for adults that use puppets for all or part of the performance. The content can be anything you imagine, with tones ranging from poignant to irreverent and from political to spiritual.
Puppet Slam performers range in talent from amateur to professional. Many Puppet Slam artists cross over from their primary discipline of poetry, music, dance, circus, stage acting, magic, and so on to experiment with the living objects of puppetry.
If you're interested in creating a piece for our Slam but need help or advice, contact us and we'll find you a mentor!
Action Puppet Force is presented by the Central Florida Puppet Guild (chartered by the Puppeteers of America). Learn more about current and past performers here.
This Slam has been made possible by generous grants from IBEX Puppetry's Puppet Slam Network as well as past partnerships with The Urban Think Foundation, Taste Restaurant, and Stardust Video & Coffee. None of these performances would have been possible without the hard work of the Central Florida Puppet Guild's members and the support of local audience members like you!
