Hello Dear Friends of Paperhand,
1st- Let me tell you we love you all and thank you for your continued support.

3rd- We, http://www.paperhand.org/, have a new show in the
works(for mature audiences), and we are very excited! We are cutting mad shadows and creating masks and marionettes to present a show this winter unlike any you've seen from us.
You can find all the details below....
Paperhand Puppet Intervention
Theatre of Moving Objects
A shadowy tale of the insatiable human condition.
Weaving styles of puppetry together from masks & shadows to marionettes & bunraku, this colaborative work explores the hellish realms of these darkly mysterious beings. The Hungry Ghost is found in Buddhist traditions throughout Asia (and the world in myriad forms.) Hungry Ghosts are the unfortunate souls of greedy or miserly people who then pay dearly and suffer greatly in the afterlife. Our tale is spun in ancient and modern times, inticing us all to contemplate our own desires & humanity.
Warning: This show is intended for mature audiences!
Which means... scary, strange and sexual content. You were warned.
"Hunry Ghost " will be preformed over 5 weekends in 3 locations; so, please read carefully to find out when and where you can see this original work.
