|Enter the conceptually dazzling and creatively daring world of puppet theater and let your imagination fly. From 1992 to 2000, the Henson International Festival of Puppet Theater, New York's highly acclaimed, biennial review of state-of-the-art puppetry, presented epic gatherings of masks, marionettes, shadows, rod puppets, and found objects from around the world. Although we are not presenting another Festival, puppetry can still be seen at venues throughout the New York area.
