'Chinese Coffee' is about what every artist truly fears: A direct confrontation in mid-life with the failure of their youthful ambitions and the truth about who and what they really are & have allowed themselves to become. Two life-long 'friends' Jake, a photographer, and Harry, a novelist begin the play in desperation and squalor & manage to raise those stakes by dissecting the painful truth about themselves and their relationship with the darkly funny vigor of two skilled boxers beating each other to a slow death in a worn-out ring with no hope of a bell to call rest.

The script is 54 pages long, which means the show will run straight through - no intermission - for about 70-80 minutes. The play is set in one place - Jake's apartment -- and takes place over the course of one evening.

'Scrabble' is a polite word game for children and adults ... This Is War.

These workshops are designed to give the participates an academic and hands on overview of both the performance and building aspects of the puppet. We will be covering on several different styles of puppetry that are the basic backbone of all forms. These workshops will be broken up into a 3 session set that will take a hands on approach to some of the endless avenues that puppetry can take. Each participate will have the opportunity to create and design their own puppet in class that will evolved throughout the sessions.

Some of the topics that the workshops will cover will include:

Writing for Puppetry (visual vs verbal)
Basic building (what a puppet needs to move)
Basic Performance skills (Capturing the illusion of life)
Puppetry for Video (exploring the option of digital media)
Life of a Puppeteer (practical options for a professional puppeteer)
Putting a show together (bringing it all together and performance options in Atlanta)

Ninja Puppet Productions has been on the cutting edge of adult oriented performance art puppetry for over 7 years now. Each workshop will be hosted by Raymond Carr, Artistic Director of Ninja Puppet Productions. Raymond has been a puppeteer for over 15 years and has traveled all over the country and to Europe performing at teaching workshops. Some of Raymond's credits include: Puppeteer for Nick Jr's Lazytown, first American Puppeteer voodoo operator for BBC's Walking with Dinosaurs The Live Experience, 6 time writer director for the Center for Puppetry art's Xperimental Puppetry Theater, Writer/Director for The Center for Puppetry Art's Family Series show A Sunday Morning Puppet Show, puppeteer for Dad's Garage Puppet Slam, and Late Night Creepy Horror Theater, and Workshop leader and performer for One Way Street Inc of Denver CO.
