Puppet-A-Go-Go’s current exhibit mimics the summer outdoor theatre festival experience, showcasing a series of four “static performances” on a stage for an audience of enthralled puppets. The public is invited to peek into this world of puppets anytime night or day, through the windows of Niagara Artist Centre‘s Plate Glass Gallery.
The outdoor theatre puppet diorama is on exhibit from September 23, 2016 through January 28, 2017 for viewing anytime. The exhibit features puppets created by the Puppet A Go Go artist collective: Christine Cosby, Alexa Fraser, Trisha Lavoie and Clelia Scala and special guest artists. Viewers will be inspired to re-visit the window diorama and use their imagination to interpret the “static performances” that will be presented over the four month “festival.” Special puppet celebrity appearances are included in the festival line-up, and the audience is a wild assortment of colourful characters.
Niagara Artist Centre’s Plate Glass Gallery is located at 354 St Paul St, St. Catharines, Ontario and can be viewed from the sidewalk any time on any day. Show runs September 23, 2016 through January 28, 2017.
