It's with great excitement that we extend this invitation to participate in the first-ever 15 Orient Puppet Show to be held at 15 Orient Avenue, Brooklyn, NY on the evening of the 29th of October in anticipation of Halloween. Embracing the entirety of the house and yard (which will themselves be dressed for the occasion), the show will feature a troupe of puppets of all sizes and types-- from the common finger-puppet to the carnival (body) puppet, the table-top puppet, the marote, the tickle bug and the marionette—and will no doubt extend to include those cousin to puppets, namely, poppets, that is, mommets or pippies (an exemplar of which is the Scandinavian “Kitchen Witch”). You may choose to perform your puppet, bringing it for a time to the center stage or marking-off some space of the house you find fit, or you may decide to simply situate it in relation to (or isolation from) the others. In the case that your puppet doesn’t directly dictate your attire, we suggest that you nonetheless dress for the occasion.
As time is already running short, we would also ask that you RSVP as soon as possible and inform us in advance of any special arrangements your puppet/performance might require.
