PUPPET JAM!, a game-jam-style event in which students, professors, and artists from the larger LA puppet community will work together to create our own puppet games and puppet vignettes. All of us will work together as a company to collaborate on ideas for a PUPPET JAM SHOWCASE!

The day will consist of puppet-making and puppeteering workshops, concluding with a showcase at 5 p.m. We hope to have an expanded conversation about puppets, games, and performances - as such, we invite anyone interested in object-based performance, interactive sculpture, and experimental games and scores to join in on the jamming!.
