Northeast/Mid-Atlantic Regional Festival: Puppet Homecoming
We’re trying something new! TWO weekends, you can go to one or both!
October 6-9, 2022: Live in NYC
October 13-16, 2022: Online
Registration for Weekend One is now OPEN! (registration for Weekend Two coming soon)
There is still time to apply via the above link to be a performer, panelist, or workshop presenter.
WEEKEND ONE (Oct. 6-9) - is the in-person weekend of the festival. This will be the first PofA Festival hosted in NYC since 1939! The first day of the festival will incorporate various NYC puppet destinations, while the majority of the festival will be held at Coney Island USA (a 40 yr-old arts non-profit and venue in South Brooklyn just two blocks from the boardwalk and the beach, www.coneyisland.com). The focus will be on puppet history in Coney Island, and puppetry as practiced in NYC and the Northeast/Mid-Atlantic regions. You will need to be physically present in Brooklyn, NY (specifically Coney Island) on October 6-9, in order to participate. We will not be providing any housing, but please find the link regarding local accommodations.
WEEKEND TWO (Oct.13-16) - is the online weekend of the festival, for those who cannot attend in person. The majority of performances/workshops/panels from the first weekend will be broadcast, and there will be additional focus on puppetry as practiced in the broader Mid-Atlantic and Northeast Regions. You do not need to physically attend Weekend One in order to attend the second weekend.
