The Butterfly Life Cycle with puppeteer Hobey Ford

Watch more with these video collections:

Puppeteer Hobey Ford became interested in puppetry when he was in the 5th grade: “A puppet show came to a school assembly and I just never forgot it.” He began seriously practicing the craft in college and built a career by building and performing with his own original puppets.

This silent Butterfly Life Cycle video from Kennedy Center Education Digital Learning shares a clip from his 2010 Family Theater performance of Animalia.

“Together with his team of adorable “Foamies,” Hobey makes animals of all sorts emerge in movement and music to form a full-on puppet ballet. Watch as the habits and habitats of the world’s mightiest beasts and tiniest bugs come into furry focus right before your eyes.”
