On June 28th, we had a beautiful artist in residence show by Marie Claire Macadar after a festive summer communal dinner. The show started with a video presentation of Marie Claire’s completed puppet shows, including “Hangers! The Musical”, which was nominated for the 2015 National Puppet Slam. Marie Claire Macadar then gave an in-progress presentation of her newest puppet show, “Escape from Grandma’s Purse”, created during her residency at Arts Letters & Numbers. The puppet show centers around a toothbrush that finds itself very, very lost inside of a grandmother’s purse, and the characters it meets along the way, including a sock, a lipstick, and.... a treacherous receipt monster. The sharing was such a playful and creative experience of contemporary puppetry, which naturally evoke dynamic exchange of thoughts and questions after her presentation.
