Puppet Slam

An evening of professional and amateur performers doing unusual things with objects…

Underground puppet slams are popping up everywhere. They feature contemporary short-form puppet and object theater for adult audiences, often late at night in small venues, nightclubs, and art spaces.

Puppet Slams exist at the nexus of vaudeville, burlesque, and performance art through the intersection of experimental theater, art, music, and dance as a viable alternative to the culturally homogenous digital mass media. If you have a secret life as a puppeteer and want to come out or an attention-worthy relationship with objects, this is your chance.

ADULT CONTENT & NUDITY may occur (puppets & people)
