Paperhand Puppet Intervention

In 1998 Paperhand Puppet Intervention’s directors Donovan Zimmerman and Jan Burger met. Since then they have been using cardboard, cornstarch, bamboo, your old house paints and other assorted junk (treasure to us!) to create incredible giant puppets, masks, shadow plays and performances for all ages.

The folks at Paperhand Puppet Intervention tell stories, beat drums, sew cloth, get sweaty, push boundaries and carry heavy things to help make the world a better place. Our parades, pageants, and performances are celebrations for everyone to enjoy!
