Puppet Kaos - where Kelvin Kao plays with puppets and tell random stories

National Puppetry Festival 09

The National Puppetry Festival of 2009 is opening tomorrow (July 14, 2009) and will run till Sunday (July 19, 2009). The event is hosted by the Puppeteers of America, and will take place in Atlanta, Georgia. It will be packed with performances and workshops… and yep, it’s all about puppets.

While I am not going to be there, I am going to be following along online. Puppet-builder and friend Naomi from Puppets in Melbourne will be live blogging this event as it happens on her Natoinal Puppetry Festival diary page. She just landed in Atlanta yesterday after four flights and has already updated the page with some sight-seeing notes. And I am only expecting more interesting info to show up on the page once the event starts.

So let’s follow along! You can find all the updates on this page, or subscribe to the RSS feed here.

Also, on a totally unrelated note: I am writing a story to be posted here. It’s about a girl who is smart, and good at telling stories. She is also the daughter of the Prime Minister of some fictional country. As some of you already know, I don’t like coming up with names. So… anyone want to suggest a name for this smart girl? If I use the name you recommend, you will get brownie points, which are not actually redeemable for brownies. Some restrictions might apply.

    Anyway, virtual brownies are the type I should be eating…

    Thanks for all the contributions here, on Twitter, and on Facebook.

    I think I am going to go with Jane, because
    1) I just met a Jane over the weekend
    2) I just read about a Jane yesterday
    3) A friend randomly suggested Jane a few hours ago.

    For me, that’s enough reason.
