Ramon Abad and the Bindlestiff Studio Puppet Crew present a kid-friendly live stream puppet performance with about 9 artists/storytellers via Zoom.
This event was originally set to occur at Bindlestiff Studio with children from SOMA Pilipinas and beyond exploring the art of modern puppetry. Ramon planned to guide the youth to write their own stories and to make their own puppets which they would perform live.
Now you can celebrate the festival’s theme of “kinship” during this fun-filled afternoon with the whole family and kids 5-11 years old in your own home!
