Bodhi Show

A version of Bodhi show was performed at For the Love of Puppets Cabaret at In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre on February 11, 2012.  The show was, privately, dedicated to Rich Wilson who passed away on February 9th.  He was a amazingly gentle person, father, puppeteer, illustrator, batik-artist, teacher, and illuminated theater and peoples life.  I will miss him.

Bodhi Show is a solo puppet show with an anatomically correct sock-monkey.  It is an exploration of a sock-monkey in everyday situation such as birth, love, anger and death.  The first installment was performed at Patrick’s Cabaret, Beat Coffee House and Full Moon Puppet Cabaret at Bedlam Theater in 2010 and 2009.  Look for another installment in the near future, near you.
