Subject: [Puptcrit] PoA Fest Blast from the Past


I was wondering if any of the regular members here might remember an outdoor, 
possibly impromptu performance at a Puppeteers of America Festival in Storrs, 
Connecticut, some years ago.   I saw a videotape (in 2001) of someone doing a 
  one man flea circus routine, without a flea circus.   There was, as I 
recall, only one flea involved, and one straw.   Of course, the straw was the only 
thing we could see.   The athletic flea-- wearing a pair of "Fleaboks," or so 
we were told-- was to be blown out of the straw and land on a small child from 
the audience.

I don't know who might have given this performance, or what year it may have 
been taped, but I'd like to see it again, in case anyone here can place it, or 
remembers having seen it or who might have done it.

Thanks,
