There are theaters, there are puppeteers, and then there is Paperhand Puppet Intervention. Located more on the eclectic fringe of the Triangle’s performing arts scene, and based in Saxapahaw, Paperhand Puppet is nevertheless a stable, long-running operation, and has been producing shows for over a decade now. Like last year, Paperhand is taking their show from the main location in Chapel Hill to the Art Museum here in Raleigh for the last weekend. Starting today, they perform for three nights at 7pm. A pre-show concert starts around 6:20pm.
Paperhand tells fantastic tales with fantastic puppets. This year’s show is called Invisible Earth. In their own words, “The great unfolding mystery of the Invisible Earth is upon us! Featuring the Dance of Domestication and a cast of goats, chickens, pigs and trilobites.”
Tickets are $17 for adults, kids under 6 are free.
