Puppetopia 2024

FEB 27 - MARCH 10

For the third year in a row come see exciting and excellent international and homegrown puppetry artists all under one roof! Two weeks of new puppet theatre, including a world premiere and three New York premieres.

The 2024 lineup:


Curious School of Puppetry: The Adventures of Curious Ganz
DOT | Feb 27-March 2

A fictitious story based on the true life of 16th-century copper smelter Joachim Ganz with a little leap to Ada Lovelace, Galileo, Al-Buzanji, Brunelleschi… A response to the closing of borders and narrowing of minds this show is a celebration of the new, the strange, the brave, and the curious!

Silencio Blanco: Pescador
Mainstage | Feb 28-March 3
A story of a fisherman, who, together with his boat and his fishing net, establishes an invaluable connection with his profession; an artisan who inhabits those places that have become strange and alien to us.


Alex and Olmsted: Marooned! A Space Comedy
Mainstage | March 5-10
An innovative new puppet show, featuring music from the Voyager Golden Record that takes place in the outer reaches of space. 

Eat Drink Tell Your Friends: Lectures
DOT | March 6-10

A story about a girl who is navigating a challenging home life, a carousel horse-maker stuck in time, and a physics lecturer (based loosely on Richard Feynman) who serves as a bridge between their two worlds.

DREAM MUSIC PUPPETRY is made possible through the generous lead support of Cheryl Henson and The Jim Henson Foundation, with the additional support of Brian Selznick & David Serlin, Elissa Auther, Stephanie D’Abruzzo, Andrea Kihlstedt, Hanne Tierney, and many other individual puppet fans.
