WE ARE HERE is the 20th anniversary celebration spectacle of unlikely proportions by North Carolina’s own intrepid and ponderous puppet troubadours, Paperhand Puppet Intervention. WE ARE HERE to illustrate and illuminate our shared human experience using giant puppets, masks, stilts, and shadows in movement to live original music, while also looking at the perspective of foxes, bees, box turtles, woodpeckers, mushrooms and the majestic trees. WE ARE HERE to grapple with some of the emerging monsters that we all create through our unconscious behaviors and to imagine the solutionary Earth defending creatures (including us!) that rise to transform them into a sustainable future. WE ARE HERE to open a portal into wondrous realms of our collective dreams and magical possibilities that lie just below the surface of the business of everyday life. WE ARE HERE making art toward protecting the sacred and standing up for the Earth. WE ARE HERE to raise our voice for justice and for peace. WE ARE HERE now, to do our best work and live our best lives. Join us and be a part of the action!
