object movement
Puppetry Residency & Festival

Object Movement is a curated festival and developmental residency for puppeteers and object theater artists, culminating in a May festival of new short works. The residency supports the vital and innovative puppetry community in New York and calls attention to how this ancient and global art form speaks to urgent contemporary social concerns and artistic questions.

Object Movement is curated by Maiko Kikuchi, Rowan Magee, and Justin Perkins.

Applications for the 2019-2020 Object Movement Residency will be open June 17 - July 28.
