Join us for the Misadventures of a Scientist Penguin
By Kurt Hunter of Minneapolis, MN
Penguin in my Pocket tells the fun-filled and quirky tale of a penguin scientist who crash lands in the jungle when her experimental jetpack fails and how she works with an artistic monkey to find her way home encountering a sea monster along the way. It’s a solo show featuring marionettes, rod puppets, audience member puppeteers and a concertina.
Created and performed by puppeteer and engineer Kurt Hunter, it highlights the importance of imagination in both art and science.

The production was supported by a grant from the Jim Henson Foundation.
