On the wilder side of the spectrum, Jim Hammond, David Goboff (President of the Puppet Guild of South Florida) and their band of creative hooligans gleefully venture deeper into a world that taps our collective fear of death and other unknowns. THE ROAST is an over-the-top comedic framing device that sets up each vignette, paying homage to nightmares as envisioned by our cast. Beyond puppeteers, the roster of slam performance artists includes regional Burning Man creatives, burlesque, Day of the Dead celebrants and Zombie Walk devotees. This strictly adults-only event is funded, in part, by Heather Henson, Puppet Slam Network, Puppet Guild of South Florida and the National Endowment for the Arts.
All Day of the Dead events will take place at the Bakehouse Art Complex at 561 NW 32nd Street, Miami, Fl. For further details, please visit www.Dayofthedeadflorida.com or www.bacfl.org. For tickets, contact 305-576-2828 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
