Giant colorful puppets made by the Paperhand Puppet Intervention from recycled materials are on display now in the main lobby of the ArtsCenter.

The local puppeteering group will put on their annual puppet show at Chapel Hill’s Forest Theater for four weekends in August and September. It will also put on two performances at the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh.

This year’s show is called “The Living Sea of Memory.” The Paperhand Puppet Intervention’s website says the show “investigates and celebrates the richness and complexity of our inner life, our dreams, and our connection with all that is; using giant puppets, painted cardboard, masks, stilts, shadows and more, all performing to live music by the Paperhand band.” For show times, click here.
