About Nasty, Brutish & Short

This late night, adult-only cabaret is packed with contemporary short-form puppet and object based theater. Providing a low-risk environment for artists to perform new and experimental work, this puppet slam fosters an artistic exchange between puppet artists of different generations and mediums.

This event is supported in part by the H. B. Henson Fund
