For thousands of years, man has manipulated puppets for a variety of reasons: ceremony, religion, education, therapy and entertainment. Of the many forms of puppetry, the most magical and cinematic is shadow puppetry. “Shadows Around The World” explores the history of shadow puppetry and its development throughout the world. The program focuses on world cultures and history and the development of Shadow Theater as an art form. Recommended for ages 4 and up.

About the Series

As our event season comes to a close, the Somerville Arts Council takes you on one last adventure: “Puppet Palooza 2019: Tales from Around the World!” Stories have always been a connective thread that brings cultures together. For this series, Tales from Around the World, our featured performers bring those stories to life. Audiences are whisked away on journeys to far-away lands featuring global tales from Africa, Persia, Indonesia, and many more. So, grab your passport and prepare for thrilling escapes and unexpected surprises along the way.

Puppet Palooza is thrilled to bring the art of puppetry to East Somerville. Join us for a five-part puppetry extravaganza, showcasing local, national, and international performing companies. Great for kids and adults and 100% free. Thanks to our collaborators, Connexion, and East Somerville Main Streets.
