Introducing Macy

I've been taking a puppetry class here at the U of M with the amazing Michael Sommers. Check out his theater, Open Eye Figure Theatre. We've made a variety of puppets, my favorite being the hand puppet. Mine is a playful little girl who is usually giggly but cries obnoxiously when made upset. Her name is Macy.

I got really into her inquisitive and naive character, so decided to make a small rod puppet version of her as well to perform in my apple tree installation.

Hopefully I'll play with these in the FantaShanty and get some video of the performances.
