Dear Artists! The 2018 La MaMa Puppet Slam seeks short works of genius!
Short works should be between three to seven minutes. We seek condensed works for puppetry that are: original, compelling, brilliant, witty, tragic, funny, stunning,startling, ironic, exotic, political, lyrical, musical, beautiful, intellectual, experimental, wild.... but always demonstrate genius in a matter of minutes!
All new, all you, your passion, and your Original Work! This year the 2018 Puppet Slam will be in La MaMa’s newly renovated DOWNSTAIRS theatre!
Nothing longer than 7 minutes! Each piece selected will receive a $75.00 fee after the slam.
