What is a puppet slam? It is a collection of short-form works of puppetry focused on entertaining an adult audience. It's a wonderful place for artists (new and experienced alike) to experiment and workshop new works to an encouraging audience.
Theme: Shadows Under the Stars
Welcome to the inaugural edition of the Socks on my Hands Puppet Slam. Founded in 2023 to serve south King County, Pierce County and other areas of Washington State; SOMHPS seeks to bring performance opportunities to various diverse communities to allow creative experimentation and exposure to the puppetry arts. Our hope is to recruit future storytellers and empower them by exploring their creative force through the universal language of puppetry. Each created piece is the potential start to a new and more diverse generation of artists and puppeteers. We hope to awaken the passion in each individual who participates while supporting them both in creating a space and by offering support through access to professional puppeteers.
This new Slam is produced by Socks on my Hands Productions, a Washington nonprofit corporation.
This series is supported by the generosity of The Puppet Slam Network, 4Culture, Renton Municipal Arts Commission
