Start with Water, flour, newspaper, paint. Add a large measure of IMAGINATION and a dollop of ARTISTRY to make STORIES about our world come ALIVE through PUPPETS. This is in the Heart of the Beast’s nearly 50 year-old puppet recipe.

In the HEART of the BEAST (HOBT) is a community of artists working within our larger community to create magic together. We make puppets large and small—monstrous, beautiful, silly, human, plant, animal, you name it. We use gesture, voice, form, and color, giving life to puppets that help tell stories to represent the world as it is and as we dream it could be. 

In 2023, HOBT will continue to teach, mentor, and provide opportunities for experienced and emerging puppet artists of diverse identities. We will present new works, conduct workshops, and residencies, and hold special events with community partners throughout the Cities.
