The Kid Should See This

The Handrils, a hand puppet piece by Sarah Nolen

You can make puppets out of anything: Socks, wooden spoons, paper bags, paper and sticks, some pen drawn on your hand, or just your hands, some movement, and practice. Example: The Handrils, a wordless hand puppet piece by Boston-based puppeteer and filmmaker Sarah Nolen.

The short interaction was created at the 2018 National Puppetry Conference at Connecticut’s Eugene O’Neill Theater Center during Alice Gottschalk’s The Language of Material and Objects workshop.
