Welcome to the Chicago Puppet Festival Archive!

Here, you will find Festival programs, video and photos from performances, in-depth commentary, and links to further reading about Festival artists, partners, programs, and their work. Whether you are a puppeteer, a scholar, or a fan, you are welcome to immerse yourself in this free archive to gain inspiration, read deeply about puppetry performances, learn new skills, or appreciate a culture that may be different from your own. This archive is helping to redefine the mainstream understanding of puppetry and foster enduring cross-cultural understanding in a pluralistic world.
