Chicago Puppet Fest presents Sea Change. Cabinet of Curiosity transforms their celebrated outdoor exploration of the power of the sea and the feminine divine for the MCA mainstage.
Chicago Puppet Fest presents The Plastic Bag Store. The Festival's “anchor attraction” is open for the duration of the festival in a street-level storefront in Chicago’s Wrigley Building. New York artist Robin Frohardt’s tragi-comic ode to the foreverness of plastic appears to be a storefront grocery, but it’s actually stocked with hundreds of hand-made items—all crafted from organic NYC trash.
Join Festival Directors, lead artists and VIPs for a special prelude to the opening night performances. Enjoy hors d'oeuvres and toast the opening of the 4th Chicago International Puppet Theater Festival prior to heading over to one of the three theaters hosting an opening night show. Show tickets sold separately.
Chicago Puppet Fest presents Moby Dick. Herman Melville’s magnificent monster work of literature is also a monster in puppetry. Experience Moby Dick like never before at this Chicago premiere, direct from France and Norway, created by the masters that brought Chicago Ashes and Chambre Noire.
