Subject: [Puptcrit] Japan festival gig

The biggest annual puppet festival in Japan, ( ) has
asked me to rustle up some performers. As I live in Japan, I=92ve appeared
at that festival regularly for several years now. For those of you who
read Corey Stevens=92 review of it in the Puppetry Journal (Fall =9105) I can
assure you that it lives up to his glowing report. Hundreds of pros and
amateurs will gather in early August to perform for thousands of
enthusiastic fans. Of course hey loved Corey=92s Shoebox show, and along
with inviting him back, have asked for more like that.
This year they are specifically looking for American solo shows, capable
of working in a street performance style. Obviously shows that rely on
spectacle more than language will be easy and fun for the local audience.
There is a bit of a budget. There are still a couple of slots open, but we
need commitments soon. If you=92re interested you=92ll be asked to send some
promo, including at least enough video to provide a little introduction to
your stuff. For now I=92ll be happy to answer questions and provide info.
I=92m not festival staff, but am in a position to make connections.
Please e-mail me off list, directly:
