The Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta, GA is calling for the submission of short puppet theater pieces ten minutes or less for the Xperimental Puppetry Theater program.

Xperimental Puppetry Theater (XPT) offers the opportunity for professional and emerging artists in all disciplines to explore and experiment, creating original puppet theater geared to adult audiences.

You can apply as a Project Director with your own show, or as an Individual Member available to participate in the different pieces as performer, musician, builder, etc.

Proposed pieces must be under ten minutes, and can feature any of the myriad styles of puppetry: shadows, marionettes, masks, automata, object theater, body puppets, rod puppets, etc.

We also accept short puppet films. Proposed films must be under eight minutes, and can be stop-motion, claymation, live manipulation, collage, silhouette, or any other style of puppet film. Accepted films will be placed in the Center’s extensive Puppetry Research Library.

We also accept puppetry themed installation/performance art which can take place anywhere on the Center’s grounds during the production in May.

We are pleased to offer funding for new works. Project grants up to $450 may be awarded. In addition, rehearsal space, some technical, design, and manipulation assistance can be provided as available.

The deadline for project proposals is February 1st, 2011. Performance dates are May 19-22, 2011. For application and more info visit our website:

Thanks for letting everyone here know Michael!  Hope you'll stop by from time to time and keep us updated on events at the Center.

Hey folks if you ever find your self in Atlanta Georgia you have to check out the center.  It is really great. I actually had a stop over in Atalanta on my way here to Myrtle Beach this year but did not have enough time to stop in.  Another worker here said that in the airport there is an exhibit of puppets but I missed it.  Maybe on my way back to KC I can find it ... Atlanta airport is pretty spread out. Smiley
