CREATE A SOLO PUPPET ACT
When I created my first solo act, I had no idea what I was doing. I had some experience as a performer, but I didn't have confidence on stage. I trembled with fear during my performance the first time I did my act at a show in San Francisco.
I've performed solo on more stages than I can keep track of – from sketchy dive bars to exclusive Hollywood events. It took persistence and courage to create and perform solo, but anyone can do it.
From my many years as a (sometimes frightened) puppeteer and performer, I'll help you find your voice and create your own solo act. I'll give you a framework, feedback, and a deadline to help you make your act and feel good about performing it in an online show or, eventually, on a stage.
You bring your vision, skill, and determination.
Here's how it works:
