Penguin in My Pocket
From the venue:
Join us for the Misadventures of a Scientist Penguin
By Kurt Hunter of Minneapolis, MN
Penguin in my Pocket tells the fun-filled and quirky tale of a penguin scientist who crash lands in the jungle when her experimental jetpack fails and how she works with an artistic monkey to find her way home encountering a sea monster along the way. It’s a solo show featuring marionettes, rod puppets, audience member puppeteers and a concertina. Created and performed by puppeteer and engineer Kurt Hunter, it highlights the importance of imagination in both art and science. The production’s creative team included director Laura Wilhelm, costume designer Robert Graff, composer Arthur Clyde and creative consultant Paul Mesner with assistance on painting, costuming and music provided by Kathy Hunter.
The production was supported by a grant from the Jim Henson Foundation.
