Check out a preview of my newest project, THE CAT DAYS OF CHRISTMAS this coming Monday at Nasty, Brutish & Short! The project is based on real cats, inspired by my experience as a cat sitter last Christmas when I was taking care of an obscene number of cats – enough to designate one cat for each day of Christmas. My final goal for the project is to create 12 episodes surrounding the relationship between a cat sitter and the 12 cats in her care.
The preview I will be showing is one episode of the planned 12. More information about the show is attached below:

Nasty Brutish & Short is an evening of contemporary short-form puppet and object based theater for adult audiences. The cabaret is a low risk environment for artists to perform new and experimental work and foster artistic exchange between puppet artists of different generations and mediums.
This event is funded in part by the Puppet Slam Network (a project of IBEX Puppetry).
Hope to see you there!
