I went to the Standing Stones Solidarity Circle in Knoxville the day before the DAPL victory and there was this indian girl there who said "I think everyone here needs to come to terms with the fact we all have white privilege."
She also suggested life-sized puppet theater. I don't know how much it costs for the supplies, really, but I've always wanted to get into theatric street performance, and puppet shows are the shit. Has anyone heard from this person about pursuing her idea, or have you seen any other badass puppet shows on the corner?

Incidentally, if you know of any traveling street theater or are interested in starting a project and looking for people to collaborate with, let me know.

I've always fantasized about getting a troupe of dirty kids to travel around and put on a Shakespeare show.

Totally down for some old-school mummery.

Sacramento has a puppeteer in old town that actually rakes in the cash just making puppets dance around to music that's playing. It's fairly lucrative, but you have to look like somebody most parents will feel comfortable around their child.

Thats interesting, a puppet theatre is something ive never seen nor thought about making.

Ive been dreaming of being part of a travelling troupe of performers and musicians.

Ill be getting a loop pedal soon so could even imagine being able to create enough sound on my guitar to support someone doing some kind of performance. So just the two of us making a show for people on the streets, I think it would go down really well. Especially if the person was spinning fire (but that is always gonna have legal problems due to, at least percieved, danger).
