VROOOM!
is Puppet Junction's latest family audience toy theater piece that follows a young spider, Artie, as he embarks on an "accidental" family reunion inside a vacuum cleaner cannister - a reunion that turns into a great escape! Based on a concept by Serra Hirsch, with playwright Benjamin Walker Sampson and composer Arlen Hart, performing live piano throughout. Vrooom! premiered at St. Ann's Warehouse in June 2013, as part of the Great Small Works Toy Theater Festival.  The piece was just awarded a Jim Henson Foundation Family Grant and will continue development through 2014.

The Dalí Project
is Puppet Junction's full scale puppet play about the artist Salvador Dalí.  Created by Serra Hirsch and Sophia Remolde, the hybrid-play has presented excerpts at Dixon Place's Puppet Blok and the Voice4Vision Puppetry Festival at Theater for the New City, as well as being a part of the 2010-2011 St. Ann's Puppet Lab.

The piece has taken inspiration from a previous Puppet Junction piece, Sleep/Sommeil, developed by Serra Hirsch and
Matt Jackson in 2006 and performed at the famous Charleville-Mezieres International Puppetry Festival in France.  As a part of the St. Ann's Puppet Lab, The Dalí Project presented its third excerpt of the piece at Labapalooza: Mini Festival of New Puppet Theater from the Lab in June 2010.  You can see some excerpts of the work in progress (Scenes 2 & 3) on YouTube here.

 

The Dalí Project was performed at the Detroit Institute of Art in the summer of 2012 while the Museum was featuring a Spanish Masterpieces exhibit. Plans are underway for a New York City premiere of the full play, so keep checking this page for more information as it develops.
