Chicken John is trying to bring Thailand’s Kai Doom Doom puppet troupe to Burning Man this year. To help achieve this dream, he is having a fundraiser, “Puppets from Perverisa”, this Saturday, April 29th at Cafe du Nord in San Francisco.
More from Chicken:
Traditional Thai shadow puppetry is amazing. If you don’t know about it, your missing out. But they do not do traditional Thai shadow puppets. They do more marionette stuff, but it’s all totally experimental and ‘new’. They are young and full of ideas. My intention is to fly them out, do a few shows here in SF and maybe LA. Bring the whole brood to Burning Man and set up a small theatre for them to perform their puppetry for the good citizens of BRC. Send them home with a few dollars as well. Just like they did for us.
