Paperhand Puppet Intervention is a cultural treasure of the Old North State, and Tarheels should turn out in droves whenever and wherever the Paperhand puppeteers are performing their left-wing political parables. Even when the plot is extremely convoluted, as the story of “City of Frogs” is, the irrepressible puppeteers and musicians of Paperhand Puppet Intervention make each scene invigorating. Bravo!
“Every year, Paperhand Puppet Intervention creates a giant puppet show/pageant in the summer using masks, stilts, giant puppets, painted flats, and shadows to tell stories, make spectacles, and illuminate myths,” explains Paperhand co-founder and ‘The Serpent’s Egg’ director Donovan Zimmerman.
“This show is just the culmination of our latest thoughts, dreams, and musings,” remarks Donovan Zimmerman. “It is inspired by the world we live in as well as the power of story in all of our lives.”
