Sandglass Theater presents Erik Ehn's Keynoye delivery for the 9th international Puppets in the Green Mountains Festival: Walking to the Borders-- kicking off a tidal wave of puppet experiences in and around Putney and Brattleboro, Vermont.

The 2015 festival has an encompassing theme for the first time: Walking to the Borders. The performances, while vastly diverse in artistry and content, all focus on the experiences of displacement, otherness, togetherness, play and commitment to a more livable world. Discussions and workshops will complement the performances and permit audiences to interact and make connection with the issues raised by the artists. Nationally known activists concerned with immigration, race, and human rights will engage in public dialogues with the performers. Among these voices are Shura Wallin, who works with Green Valley Samaritans to rescue migrants from the Arizona deserts, Christal Brown, formally of Urban Bush Women, now on the dance faculty of Middlebury College, and Julie Lichtenberg, director of The Performance Project in Springfield, MA.
