Breakfast is a short film, created in collaboration with radio and multimedia artist Bianca Giaever. It premiered at the 2013 Puppets on Film Festival, put on by the Jim Henson Foundation and BAM.
Meeting somewhere between our respective backgrounds, Breakfast combines interview material compiled by Bianca with some of my puppets, including a hand-carved, Czech-style marionette.
I created the film's protagonist puppet while studying marionette creation and manipulation in Prague. It was, in fact, the very first puppet I made while on my Watson Fellowship. I am so pleased to be able to continue performing with it, particularly here, in a film about breakfast.
