Subject: [Puptcrit] Earth Hour

Any puppet companies taking part in Earth Hour?

Did your City fathers (and mothers) support this?
Will performance venues go dark for 60 minutes?

I was at an international theatre festival in Baltimore in the early  
1970's (TNT - The New Theatre).
One performance was totally in the dark. The audience had to listen.  
No one fell asleep, or admitted to it.

It would be a great opportunity for puppet artists to do a candlelight  
only performance. Campfire puppetry in parks.
Torch lit puppet procession. Shadow puppetry with fire light. etc.
