Puppet Power Intermissions Wordmark 1080x1080Pay What You Can $3 OR $5 OR $10 + Fees & GST

This Intermission – Celebrating Love, explores the role of puppets, masks, performance, in celebrating human relationships in all their various configurations.

Join emcee Andrew G. Cooper (he/they), puppeteer, theatre creator, and filmmaker in this engaging Intermissions! featuring a reading of Worm Loves Worm. This irresistible picture book, which is a celebration of love in all its splendid forms, opens up conversation on societal pressures, prejudices, norms and more.

Author Mike Curato, suggests that ‘all is solved by love’ – but is it really? As the Logan Museum of Anthropology in Wisconsin states” Gender is abstract and politically charged, but we know it when we see it. Gender is a performance, one we learn from a young age and act out in our daily lives, often without knowing it. Gender is expressed differently across cultures and is often explicit in performances.”

Intermissions! an online networking and idea exchange hosted by special guests. Spend an hour of informal conversation, exploring ideas around puppetry and “celebration events” – everything from birthday parties to end of life celebrations… from social rituals to social justice.

Intermissions - Celebrating Love Accessibility: This session will be presented with auto-generated English captions.

Intermissions! is produced by W.P. Puppet Theatre Society and is part of our Puppet Power: Festival of Ideas celebrating themes around applied puppetry. Check out our full line up or purchase a full access pass to the event HERE!
